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 #5

Feb 011999

Tahoe 4WD

  • miles


Truck vibrates at speeds of 45 miles per hour. Truck has been taken for inspection and the following has been done: Change tires three times, rotate all tires, pitman arms have been changed, brakepads have been changed, roters replaced, shocks replaced, allignment, balancing of tires, steering stabalizer done, with all this this truck continues with the same problem. The manufacturer has never been able to fix the problem even when it was under warranty. We are unable to find a solution to this problem and wonder if this truck model has been recalled. The problem continues. Please help!

Consumer noticed while traveling at various speeds that vehicle would "wander" slightly to right problem was more noticeable at higher speeds. Had vehicle tire leak repaired. Seemed to correct problem temporarily. Had brakes checked, and frontmend allignment and everything else was okay.

Vehicle has consistently pulled to the right since purchase. Vehicle has been aligned three times within first 30,000 miles. Dealership contends nothing wrong with vehicle. This problem has ruined the tires of the vehicle, as well. I have contacted manufacturer re: Florida lemon law, as well as fl state attorney general (I have not heard back from state ag office in 6 weeks).

problem #2

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.
