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.

problem #3

Tahoe LT 5.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 71,000 miles


Any others who have this problem please go to and file an official complaint with them so that it will result in a recall. Auto Beef rocks but for serious things like brakes or other serious safety issues you need to get the nhtsa involved so that they can help get a recall. People need to help the American auto industry by holding them accountable so that they learn to do it with quality the first time and not stick the consumer. Once they learn to do this the consumer will again be confident in their vehicles and they will regain enough market share to be on top again. Hey GM, Stop making people say "I'm buying a (Toyota, Honda, Nissan or whatever) next time". Get them to say "this car / truck was awesome and I'll buy another for sure." My local dealer gave me prices to fix problem. If the sensors don't break and they can clean and reinstall $120 but if one or both sensors brake as they are being removed it can be as much as $427. GM showed no interest in making this right on their own so I'm pursing a recall through NHTSA. The complaint has been filed and I will update as to the results. Soon Hopefully. This is the only serious safety issue with this vehicle but many other problems considering garage kept with only 70,000 mi. and well maintained. Rear Stereo speakers, lights on stereo, lights on electronic 4wd buttons, fuel pump issues. Great car otherwise. Seriously.

  • Automatic transmission

what ever the problem is, it seems like i'm driving in the snow at all times. every time i try to stop the damn truck it scares the sh*t out of me. Chevy needs to put better braking systems on these big trucks. someone could get badly hurt if i rear end them with my rig cause the abs sensor is no good. spend the extra money cheap ass Chevy!

(reported on)

Tahoe LX V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 87,400 miles

As you would pull into a parking spot or stop at a red light the brakes would act like a burp. and the vehicle would slide forward a couple of inches, What would happen was the anti-lock brakes would kick in and scare the heck out of you.
