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

Tahoe 8-cyl

The rear hatch glass is mounted to the body by a rubber hinge attachment process, the bonding failed which allowed the rear hatch glass to fall off of the body hitting me in the process. This causes a dangerous condition that could harm another motorist if the glass falls off while traveling at highway speed. It is a very common failure that is a manufacturers defect.

On 6/8/2001, I purchased a 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe from sewell Cadillac-Chevrolet. In 2003 hinges on the rear door cargo window had to be replaced/repaired because the window would not close properly because the hinges were coming loose from the vehicle. The cargo window on the rear door was rarely used. The last time it was opened was August, 2009. While the car was being driven on the highway in may, 2010, the cargo window flew off the car. It is my understanding that failure of the attachment of the hinges to the window is due to the rubber bonding material that is used and is not an uncommon event. The occurrence of a window flying off a vehicle while it is being driven is, in my opinion a significant safety hazard that could result in accidents and severe injury. I paid to have the window replaced. General Motors was informed(file # [xxx] ), were not concerned about this problem, and to the best of my knowledge has done nothing. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
