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 #1

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Recently I noted a grinding noise in the rear end of my Tahoe. A repair shop showed me the "back plates" on the rear wheels. They were completely corroded to the point that pieces were falling off the plates. I was informed that this would not affect my braking but could lead to the inability to use my emergency brake. The manager said he had never seen anything this bad. A technician nearby spoke up and siad he saw a set on a Chevy truck recently. I am submitting this material for only one purpose. I suspect there may be use of substandard, faulty material that is not resistant to corrosion being used in at least the Chevrolet line of trucks. This could result in failirue of the emergency brake and potential loss of life. I intend to get mine repaired but how many could be out there undiagnosed?
