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

Oct 202012

Suburban 1500 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


If you have a clunking noise while turning the steering wheel & if its hard to duplicate, I have the fix. After replacing the CV axles & some steering bushing, searching the internet & trying some linkage fixes, I took it into a shop to have them look at it. They said that my steering linkage was fine. Today, I laid under my suburban while my son turned the steering wheel back & forth. I narrowed the noise/vibration down to the aluminum skid plate under the engine & transmission. After tightening the lose bolts up, the noise was gone!! It was as simple as that!!
