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

Dec 242006

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 33,645 miles


The shift lever arm on the automatic transmission had rusted sufficiently that the shift cable connection slipped off the nipple on the shift lever arm. It appears to be a snap fit without any positive retention. It was then not possible to shift gears or re-start the engine. Luckily this happened in my own driveway just after I had driven home on the freeway. The repair shop replaced the lever arm and the complete cable assembly. I have the defective parts.
