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.

1998 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 032007

Tahoe 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 89,857 miles


Outside temp below freezing so I heated up my 1998 Chevy Tahoe (including heated leather seats on low setting) and when I returned to my vehicle less than 5 minutes later, driver's seat was on fire. Vehicle has less that 90,000 miles and has not been mistreated. I happened to have a drink in my hand so I poured it on the seat to put it out. Had I actually been sitting on the seat, I could have been seriously burned.
