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 #1

Tahoe 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 53,000 miles


On 04-17-03 I went out to drive my 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe. As I began to drive down the street the vehicle shut off and the battery indicator light came on. I lost power steering and brakes. As the vehicle rolled, I was able to get it over to the right side of the road out of traffic. I attempted to start it a couple of times before noticing that gas was coming out from underneath the drivers area and was pouring onto the ground. I had the vehicle towed to a local mechanic who advised that the gas line became disconnected. I had just left my son in surgery and was to come back to pick him and my wife up. This incident could have become very bad and killed myself and possibly my family had they been in the vehicle. This needs to be investigated and action taken. In the past I along with my wife have reported vehicle problems to the dealer with them taking little to no action. Please help also the steering appears to be becoming a problem.
