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.

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #2

Tahoe LT 5.3L V8

I really think this mirror problem should be a recall or Chevrolet should cover the cost of getting it fixed. Right after the mirror started getting discolored and hard to see out of, I took my tahoe to the Chevy place where I purchased it in 2002 brand new, and he looked and there was not a recall. It is very bad when you can't see clearly out of that mirror, since it is used so much. The heater must have burned up in it to have caused the discoloration. It was going to cost hundreds of dollars to get it replaced in 2007 and we just didn't have the money and still don't. I love my tahoe and wouldn't trade it for any other vehicle, but I am really upset that Chevrolet would not cover the cost to take care of this problem. I got online today to purchase a mirror and then I will have to hire someone to paint the one part of it white and install it. I don't want to have one that isn't just like the color that is on it now. I have decided that it really needs to be taken care of because I am older now and my eyesight isn't as good. With it being discolored like it is and my eyesight not as good, it could sure cause me to have a wreck!
