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 #3

Suburban 8-cyl

  • 73,000 miles


Stability system indicator/traction active/traction control indicator come on when making left hand turn sometimes vehicle stalls when accelerator is pressed and "traction active" will illuminate on the dic. Dealer stated that it was a "wheel hub sensor". replaced left wheel hub assembly, still have same issue. In work on replacing right hand wheel hub assembly to see if this corrects issue, but by the look of some of the other responses it will not. Need a recall if this is happening, possible life threatening situation if car stalls when turning through oncoming traffic.

I went to my local Chevy dealer service dept. To report a problem with my steering mechanism - sever clunking, rattling felt in the steering wheel while driving. The service rep stated that this is a very common problem with the Suburban. This has been an ongoing problem with my vehicle, starting at about 32K miles.

Steering clunks and loose, worse when going around curves and during braking. This is a know faulty design of the intermediate steering shaft that caused the manufacture to redesign part. How many people have to be injured before GM issues a recall"??"
