Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2005 Chevrolet Suburban (less than 1 week old) -car was placed into park on a driveway with hill -parking foot brake was engaged -I left the vehicle and started walking into this house -at 30 yds I heard something behind me and turned to realize the car was rolling -I ran back, jumped into the car and slammed the brake on -I tested this 3 more times and repeated this condition. -the dashboard indicator is saying the car is in park, but it is not locking -an additional concern was that parking brake did not hold up with 3 children in my household this is a major concern. Not to mention it nearly ran me over. This is a brand new car!!! not more than 400 miles on it. Car is currently being looked at by the Chevy dealer. This is serious and thought it was important to inform the Agency.I*= -
