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 Z71 V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,000 miles

It wouldn't be a big deal except that it happened 3 times total. The first 2 times I couldn't drive it because it was so hard to steer. Then I felt it was going bad again and I got something in the mail saying the replacement one the second time was now recalled. I had to have it fixed 3 times.

Tahoe V6

  • Automatic transmission

I purchased my first brand new car, A 2003 Chevy Tahoe, and what a piece of CRAP. I have had nothing but problems with the steering going out within the first two years. Windows won't roll up or down. Now, the damn thing won't turn over. It acts like it's out of gas. Won't start!!! This was the biggest headache I ever gave myself. Incidentally, I have friends with the same vehicle telling me that they have encountered the same problems. I'm fed up with American cars. NO MORE!!
