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.

2009 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 242014

Suburban 8-cyl

  • 40,053 miles


Accelerating in traffic on a three lane road. At approximately 30 mph, the vehicle power steering, brakes, and acceleration locked up. I could barely turn the wheel and the brake pedal was unresponsive. I could not accelerate at all. I was able to muscle the car into a parking lot and jam on the breaks to coast to a stop. The power was still on the car, but the ac was not blowing as hard. After a restart, it worked normally.
