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.

Vehicle was stationary, driver placed ac on highest setting, but nothing blew out (mylink screen also displays no air). Navigation stops working in middle of route and changes destination to a different country (Mexico). Vehicle feels like it wants to die in stop/go traffic and while in stationary position. When making turns at any speed, driver will begin braking, and vehicle accelerates on its own causing many near miss accidents including almost falling off a bridge. Lastly, many 2015 Suburban have been recalled for their airbags, but mine has not. Concerned that ours may be impacted and do not wish to end up injured or a fatality. NHTSA has documented fatalities of airbag failures from vehicles not recalled that were 2015 Tahoe and Suburban. Vibrations are so loud they cause migraines and earaches in all occupants.

Vehicle has unusual vibration at highway speeds. It has done this for some time & does this over most road types - we recently took it to Florida on a 2,000+ mile vacation trip - it vibrated most of the time on the highway. Here is a 30 day link to video of vibration: Https://www.icloud.com/attachment/?U=https%3A%2F%2fcvws.icloud-content.com%2fb%2faauip4ufpiywv-lvsmey5oz-ljchas2maf2eqwpyj_ffk4inuqjuua3D%2F%24%7bf%7D%3fo%3dal4P6orkl19_tbylinuxrjffreo4hkmgzeuf9-F6kl4X%26V%3D1%26X%3D3%26A%3dbfu-yajvazh_A_-umwea_whiap8vytby%26E%3D1465132707%26K%3D%24%7buk%7D%26fl%3D%26R%3D985C76D2-cece-4030-B968-F19dcf98D382-1%26ckc%3dcom.apple.largeattachment%26ckz%3dff26F67A-C38C-48F9-A562-D17E77A0eaa3%26P%3D30%26S%3dwpavflxtznbmr3mwzkqj98qatgi&uk=M7pjepktnqi6F1kjhuzcsw&F=img_0466.mov&sz=45872032

Rear hatch that is enabled by foot sensor is activated when not intended to and the rear hatch can close on occupant if not pushed by manually. Asked dealership to disable feature and they said they are unable to. The rear hatch closes spontaneosly when a motion is detected near rear hatch and not just as intended to if quick in/out motion of foot beneath rear car hatch is detected. Very dangerous if children are near when open and they don't know how to push hatch back to prevent from closing. I have repeatedly reported to Chevy and they say there is nothing they can do.

The contact owns a 2015 Chevrolet Suburban. While driving between 35 and 55 mph, the occupants in the vehicle endured migraines, vertigo, nausea, vomiting, and ear popping. Medical attention was not required. The vehicle was taken to a dealer several times where it was repaired; however, the failure recurred. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage was 13,500.

Sound buffeting in when traveling 40-45 mph. I have read that it may have to do with the roof separating from the roof bows. Is this jeopardizing my family's safety? it also causes discomfort while driving. This seems to be extremely widespread; fox news and usa today have released stories which means a large percentage of vehicles are having these issues. A recall needs to be issued. Now that GM and NHTSA are publically aware, responsibility for any safety violations are in there hands.
