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.

2001 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #3

Aug 122004

Tahoe 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,500 miles


Upon opening the liftgate glass on my 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe the passenger side body-to-glass hinge separated from the glass. The glass will latch but does not make a weatherproof seal and can not be opened.

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 51,000 miles
Back glass lift gate hing came unglued/unattached and when we opened the window, it sprung way out of wack and wouldn't close properly. Chevrolet dealer that fixed it, said they have seen many of these hinges fail.

Tahoe 8-cyl

Liftate glass separates from hinges.local dealer and local glass shops say this is common problem. Chevrolet denies ever hearing of this trouble. If this had happened at highway speeds the back window would have shattered and who knows what the end result could have been.
