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.

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

Parking brake premature wearing results in vehicle that can roll down a hill and cause injury or accident. With 28,000 miles on my 2001 Chevy Tahoe, the parking brake will not hold. After paying the dealer to look at the problem I was told that the brake shoes were worn. I was informed that other newer model trucks have the same condition. The service tech said, "driving just 10 feet will wear them out." I informed I do not drive with the brake on. On perhaps 2-3 ocassions did I move with the brake on and once the chime sounded it was taken off. Driving 10 feet is hardly acceptable. I contacted Chevrolet about this built-iin requirement for service that makes the dealer happy and causes a major safety issue. They were not willing to make any "goodwill" gestures, citing this was a wear issue.
