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

My complaint has to do with the running lights and the brake system for the 2001 Chevy Tahoe. I have had my running lights replace numerous times and there is an apparent short in the wiring connection that will have to be fixed. My parking and ABS brake lights keep coming on even though the braking system has been replaced and the lines have been flushed. These lights go off once the car is restarted, but sometimes come back on. This will be my second trip to the mechanic to see what the problem with my brakes is. I think this is ridiculous because I have already spent several hundred dollars that I didn't have, in order to ensure my children's safety. Now after reading about the parking brake, who knows how much more I will have to spend to have it checked to see if that is the problem? since there are parking brake issues, the vehicles should have been recalled at the cost of the company, not the consumer.

While driving passenger in the rear seat adjusted the passenger seat and noticed sparks coming from under the seat. Later, the sparks turned into flames. The fire department extinguished the fire because the wires kept igniting.
