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

Mar 012003

Tahoe 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,000 miles


2001 Tahoe, excessive play in the steering. This has not caused an accident, yet. The steering was beginning to get noticably loose around 25,000 miles. We now have 50,000 mi on the vehicle and the play is getting worse. The wheels will catch in any imperfections in the road and jerk the vehicle that direction requiring the driver to oversteer to correct. We have had the vehicle into the Chevrolet dealership 4 times in the past 2 years to try to correct the problem. They say there is nothing loose. I suspect that it is in the steering box itself and Chevrolet is unwilling to admit this problem. This is a very dangerous problem and must be fixed. Any support would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Steve acker
