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.

2006 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

problem #1

May 232006

Suburban 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,400 miles


: the contact stated while the vehicle was parked; a child in the rear seat, outside of a child safety seat, became entangled in the rear passenger seat belt. The seat belt locked and all attempts to free the child only made the belt tighter. Assistance was obtained from an outside source that provided scissors to cut the belt and free the child. The child sustained bruises to the neck. Took the child to the doctor to check the neck bruises. The doctor stated that they will warn other patients of the danger associated with the seat belts. The contact stated there should be a safety release to eliminate a serious situation, a release button has to be added. Updated 06/05/2006.
