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

Please be advised that I would like to lodge a complaint regarding the placement of both the driver and passenger seatbelt. I have been burned, on both my left and right- side upper-back area, by the metal insert of the seatbelt. It seems that if the sun's positioning happens to shift to the front area of the vehicle, the insert of the seatbelt becomes dangerously hot. I believe this is a serious defect in the vehicle's otherwise superb structure. I would like information on a possible remedy to this matter and look forward to an expedient response.

Seatbelt on passenger's side locks up where it cannot be used. This happens intermittently. Took vehicle to dealer, and dealer replaced seat belt. But problem still exists. Consumer states the seat belt would not come out of retractor at all and also the seat belt locked against the seat.
