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 #3

Jul 182010


  • 81,000 miles


My 2002 Tahoe's ABS comes on at speeds under 10 mph in dry conditions. I see that there is a recall for my year vehicle, so I contacted GM and was told my vehicle was not one of the recalled vehicles, but yet I am having the same problem as listed in the recall. This makes no sense to me at all. What can I do? please help.

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe. Having problem with the ABS system. It happened three times. The last time it happened on April 15, 2005 caroline was coming off ramp at 10 mph there was water draining off side, there was no warning light, the brake pedal went all the way down, and the car did not stop. The car was taken to the dealer on April 18,2005, and the dealer stated there was nothing wrong with the ABS system. Driver's front door seems to fill with water. No water found in door. Door is designed to allow water to go in door and drain out bottom. Idle is rough. Dealer let vehicle idle in stall for approximately 30 minutes with no rough idle noted.
