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.

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #3

Jun 252006

Tahoe 8 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 64,000 miles


I feel that the bumper should not have rusted out in such a short time, and I do not remember getting a recall notice from chevrolet......Is there any way to have this problem dealt with???

It really makes the rest of the car look terrible.

Tahoe Z71 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles

Front grill paint chipped off slowly. Vehicle is white and primer was dark. Gave it that "holstien cow" look to it. Rear bumper is rusting from inside out pushing on the paint from seam where plastic meets metal. Nice, real nice. I will have vehicle painted in spring.

I paid to have the vehicle rust proofed. It certainly should not have started rusting out at only 2 years - it looks terrible, while the rest of the vehicle still looks new. They should be embarrassed that their vehicle looks so terrible!!!!
