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.

I was loading groceries through the open liftgate window. When I finished and tried to close the window it wouldn't close. It was off center, I was finally able to close it by pushing up on the passenger side of the glass allowing me to secure the liftgate glass. I bougth this car through carmax in charlotte and never received a notice about this problem but with research I have discovered it to be a fairly common problem.

Tahoe 8-cyl

  • 40,000 miles
The liftgate glass hinge has separated from the molding causing the liftgate glass window to become unsafe since it is now held onto the car by only one rubber hinge bracket. The glass in the liftgate will not close and could become separated from the car while the car is moving down the highway causing serious injury to cars following my car. The local dealer stated that he had seen the problem before but there is no recall and my only recourse was to purchase a new rear liftgate window at a cost of nearly $1000. I am now on record as having stated in writing that, in my opinion, this is a serious situation and this manufacture defect could cause the rear glass to become separated from the car at highway speeds and hit another vehicle on the highway. The odometer on my car reads 40,000 miles.
