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.

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

I bought a 2001 chevrolex Tahoe used in March of 2004. Since then the front seat belts have not worked properly. It has been to the dealer 6 times for 3 replacements. Still not fixed. GM has moved my issue to custoimer relations and I was supposed to call me back on novemeber 8 and as on novemeber 29 I still have not been called back. Contact person at GM is craig king (813)635-4084. Driver belt locks up as you try to put it on and sometimes can not get belt on. Passanger belt locks up on passanger and will not unluck even when passanger leans back. Person gets trapped against seat and realesing belt from buckle only way for person to move.

I bought a 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe in March of 2004. Since that time the front seat belts have been replaced 2 times. Currently the Tahoe is in hawthorne Chevrolet in hawthorne NJ, trying to get it repaired for the third time. I have contacted chvrolet themselves about this. I am worried that it will be unable to be repaired. If that happens Chevrolet seems resistant to stand behind the safety defect of there manufactored truck. My truck obviously can not be released from the dealer until fixed. October 13 was the 5th day in the shop for the truck and it was returned there that day and is still there.

Drivers seat heating senor over heated. The dealer made repairs at 28,000 miles. Now at the present mileages of 33,000 miles the problem has resurfaced. The passenger seat belt would continue to tighten on the occupant while driving. The spare tire cable plastic connector would not release the spare tire.

The front passenger seat belt does not work - it chokes the passenger. The seat belt has been replaced twice; the entire seat was replaced once, but it is still a problem. We have a seat belt law in my state, but the seat belt cannot be worn.
