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.

problem #3

Oct 032013

Suburban 8-cyl

  • 47,480 miles


Air bag light, door locks, traction control, radio, and many other electrical components flicker on and off. Engine vibrates and then dies. Will not start back up until some period of time goes by. Always diff and happens in all temps and driving conditions. When in garage all night will not start in the am. Very intermittent. We have been stranded with kids 5 times and have only owned this vehicle for 4 months.

problem #2

Oct 142011


  • 105,600 miles
Cracks on dashboard next to passenger airbag and above the instrument panel on the left side running across the hump. Always kept in covered garage and maintained as per manufacturer suggested cleaning procedures. Crack on passenger side has widened to the point where the air bag cover makes a rattling noise, apparently due to vibration of the whole part.

The contact owns a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The contact stated that when driving at various speeds, the doors would lock and unlock independently with the illumination of the service air bag warning light. The vehicle was taken to the dealer three times for repairs but to no avail. The dealer advised that each component had its own modular but replacing the modular for each component had not corrected the failure. The failure mileage was 20,000 and the current mileage was 24,000.
