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.

2003 Hummer H2 Owner Comments

problem #2

We purchased this H2 in December 2014 and by Feb 2015 noticed a grumbly sound in the brakes. We took it in for service and the tech told us the whole undercarriage was rusted and all the brake lines were rusted thru and had to be replaced. Since some of the lines were no longer available, they had to "create" them. This was a costly fix and who knows what the safety impact could have been.

problem #1

  • 80,000 miles
The contact owns a 2003 Hummer H2. The contact was driving 45 mph and attempted to stop at a red light when the brakes failed. The vehicle coasted until it stopped in a parking lot. The emergency brake was used to drive the vehicle to the contact's residence. The vehicle was later taken to an independent mechanic, who diagnosed the vehicle as having corrosion on the brake line. The contact was informed that in order to repair the vehicle, the frame would have to be removed. The vehicle was not repaired and the manufacturer was not notified of the incident. The approximate failure mileage was 80,000.
