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.

While driving at speeds above 50 mph the front end and the steering wheel will shake violently. At the same time the brake pedal pulsates and is very firm. Vehicle has to be brought to a complete stop to return it to help eliminate the shaking. Dealership has been notified but feels this condition is not a problem.

problem #1

Feb 232001

Tahoe 4WD

  • miles
While driving between 60-65 a vibration in the front started to occur. The vibration would be so bad that I could bearly hold on to the steering wheel. It would then fade in 5 miles or so. I had it back to the dealer twice and they could not find the cause. I recently discovered that when the vibration started to occur I could use my left foot and lift up on the brake pedal and the vibration would immediatley stop. I have not had the chance to tell the dealer this new information.
