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.

Tahoe 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 43,600 miles
Defects: ABS light on at 43,600 miles. When car is turned off a loud noise is heard beneath the drivers side of the vehicle my independent mechanic said the ABS unit is purging. At 20 miles and regularly there after, when the fog light power button is pressed, the rear window wiper briefly makes noise as if it had been activated. At 3000 miles and regularly there after, all four doors squeak at the hinges and must be lubricated weekly. At 10,600 miles the rear differential began to leak. Both driver and passenger seat squeak and do not firmly lock into position. The driver and front passenger seats do not lock into position. The parking brake has not worked since I purchased the vehicle.
