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.

problem #1

  • 70,000 miles
My 2003 Chevy Tahoe Z71 transmission failed while driving. The transmission would not engage at all after the incident. Vehicle had approx. 70,000 miles. The transmission was repaired at the GM dealership. I still have the parts available. GM dealer nor the Chevy customer service line would acknowledge this as a issue on the Tahoe. The incident occurred in a main road with significant traffic - it had the potential to be a safety issue as I was making a left hand turn when the incident occurred. 4L60 transmission.
