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.

A steel fuel line from the fuel tank to the engine bay has started weeping. The dealer said that they all need replacement due to corrosion failure. The estimated cost $2300 because the body must be lifted from the frame. This comes just a few months after the brake lines had to be replaced for the same reason and at a cost of $2200. Obviously GM has installed low grade I.e. low cost steel tubing on this truck.

Tahoe 8-cyl

Was driving in the business district when pump failed. Engine shut down which also shut down power brakes and steering. Gas guage showed empty although tank was half full. Had to have the unit towed into dealership where pump was replaced at a cost of $1203.84. This was the second failure of the gas tank pump. First replacement was I believe in the fall of 2005 shortly after the warranty had expired at a cost of slightly less than $1000. Mileage would have been between 35 & 40,000. Don"T have the ticket for this but I believe I can get it. Have talked with others who have had the same problem. If you have pickup can be changed cheaper as they remove the pickup box. In both instances I was traveling at a low rate of speed so the loss of power steering and power brakes was not catistrophic.

My 02 Tahoe fuel gauge began to read empty just after filling the tank up. Since then the gauge had read empty.
