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.

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


The vehicle is a 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71 four-wheel drive. The intermediate shaft shakes and rattles to the point of having slack in it. He took vehicle to the dealer and they greased it. The second time they greased it again. The third time the dealership replaced the intermediate shaft because it was on a recall. Consumer had to wait a year before they could get the replacement part. The problem has returned even after the part was replaced. The problem was in the same area but, the noise was a little different and it was making a knocking sound. Consumer believed that it may be in the front end differential. Consumer has not contacted the dealership. Also, fuel pump failed. Dealership replaced the fuel pump. There were other problems, but consumer felt they were minor.
