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.

2000 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 012009

Tahoe LS V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 116,000 miles


This is the second transmission to fail in the truck. Both times out of warranty. Other friends have had the same problem, 1 with Suburban , 1 with P/U, 1 with Tahoe. Blogs state this trans is not the correct trans for Tahoe and is the same trans in the Trailblazer which is smaller and lighter. Chevy dealers deny any problem except one that did admit (off the record) a trend for this trans to fail. Symptoms are trans not engaging in gear from a stop, whining noise at speed , slipping (like slipping a clutch) and final failure where trans whines and has no ability to move the vehicle except at a slow idleing pace. Any one else have this type of problem? Any solutions?
