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

(reported on)

Tahoe Z71 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles


My Tahoe has been broken into 6 times now. One time the window was broken and the other 5 times the door was simply busted with a screwdriver or similar device, the door opened and the contents of the car taken without incident. The alarm has NEVER activated and the lock seems to take about 1 second to bust (it has made the security camera twice now). Obviously, thieves know this about the Tahoe. Why else would they target a 6 year old car parked next to many other newer and nicer cars? FIX THE LOCKS OR MAKE THE ALARM SYSTEM REAL! When I called Chevrolet they simply told me that the "alarm system" was not really an alarm but an "anti-theft device" meaning that a light blinks to scare away the bad guys and if you happen to stumble upon the perfect scenario you make actually set the alarm off... but it's doubtful.
