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

Jan 051999

Tahoe 4WD

  • miles


Front end shimmy at speeds over 50mph. Balanced and rebalanced tires, aligned front end 3 times in 6 months. Finally replaced all 4 tires w/new Firestone tires. Aligned front end w/new tires. 3 months later, rotated and balanced tires - front end shimmy continues to occur. Have tried alignment, balancing tires, and new tires. Not acceptable to have significant front end shimmy beginning at 15000 miles. Also increased vibration when braking - rotors have already been replaced twice and vibration that shakes steering wheel continues to occur when braking.
