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.

2008 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 312008

Problem: Unstable & inadequate jack for vehicle. I had a flat on my vehicle and used the factory jack. While pulling the tire off the lugs the vehicle shifted and the jack fell over. Luckily the tire was still within the wheel-well and tire/rim broke the fall. Even though I was on a flat level concrete parking lot, the stability of the jack is poor (very small footprint and top of the Ram is also small). Not very much front-back movement causes instability for the jack. In addition, the maximum jack height provided barely enough clearance to put a new tire on (20? factory tires). This would have not been possible on any other surface like the shoulder of a highway. I do admit that I had not properly "chocked" the tires that allowed for more movement than normal, but the movement that caused the fall was not excessive. I personally rotate my tires on all four of my vehicles frequently using a floor jack and never have had this problem. The factory jack is unsafe and undersized for this large vehicle (Suburban). A co-worker also experienced this same accident with his Tahoe while in his garage.
