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

2002 Tahoe engine stalled when pulling into a parking space. The vehicle was towed to the nearest Chevrolet dealership. The consumer was told that the shaft to the power steering had broken and needed to be replaced as well as the motor to the power steering.

At 60+ mph, the power steering feels unstable. This may be a failure in the variable assist system although dealer was confused if tahow still had this system. It may be front suspension instability. Vehicle handles very well at lower speeds but over 60, it wanders and the steering feels like it will overcompensate or oversteer. Unknown if the Tahoe still has a variable power assist steering. I would like to speak to a Chevrolet representative that can provide this information and assistance.
