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.

1999 GMC Suburban Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 282015

Suburban LL V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 127,875 miles


I hit a big truck that ran a stop sign, I was going 25 mph. Everything I had in bags on the passenger seat flew off the seat and out of the bags.

I hit him on my front drivers side. It dented my Suburban, just scuffed the other drivers tires. That is how big that truck was. I was flung forward and my head almost hit the steering wheel, the only reason it didn't was because I had my arm locked with my hand on my horn. The seat belt DID NOT LOCK. Isn't that the purpose of the locking seat belt? I mean it locks at the most inconvenient times, but when I really really need it, it fails miserably.

I have a very bad neck disability, I am handicapped because of it. I thank God that I was in my Suburban and not in a smaller vehicle, but it really would have helped me out if the seat belt would have locked! I am fairly certain I will need testing and neck (painful) injections after this incident because of the whiplash I believe I have.
