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

problem #1

Dec 072004

Tahoe 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,400 miles


This complaint was received via E-mail. Heard some noise in the steering from the day he bought the 2003 Tahoe when turning steering wheel and when backing out of driveway. The clanking noise only started about 4 weeks ago, and became worse quickly. The clanking noise could be felt through the steering wheel at slower speeds, especially when turning steering wheel. It felt like something was loose. Took vehicle in for service on 1/03/05 with 28,400 miles, and dealer knew immediately what the problem was. They said it was a common problem with this model. In fact, some people reported this problem as early as 5,000 miles. They removed the steering shaft, packed it with grease, and the clanking noise stopped. When not under warranty the repairs would cost between $75- S100. Researched the problem on the internet and found many similar complaints. The consumer was told a steering shaft was needed, however it was on back order.
