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.

1997 GMC Suburban Owner Comments

problem #1

Suburban SLT 5.0L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 64,000 miles

GM offered no support whatsoever even though it was a three year old truck with 64,000 miles on it. Transmission failure was extremely premature. No help at all from the manufacturer.
