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 #2

Jul 212004

Bought a used 2001 Tahoe June 4, 2004. Opened rear glass on hatch many times with no problems. In late July my husband opened and one of the hinges broke. The metal actually tore. To correct this problem the whole glass must be replaced, the hinge is part of the glass. I have since heard "through the grapevine" that this is a common problem with the Chevy Tahoe. When the service depart. At my local Chevy dealer ordered the new glass, by computer, the part # changed many times, as if many changes had been made and eventually the part (glass) had to come directly from the glass manufacturer. Obviously GM is aware of the problem. My concern is that had one of my children, or even myself with not as much strength as my husband opened the glass on the hatch, we would not have been able to catch and hold the end with the broken hinge resulting in the remaining hinge "tearing" and there could have been serious injury. My Tahoe is not under warranty so I was responsible for the $700 bill that I truly feel GM should be responsible for as this is a safety issue.
