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 #1

Dec 202014

Tahoe LS 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 79,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

1 QUART OF OIL BURNED EVERY 500 MILES. HEAVY LIFTER NOISE EVERY TIME I START THE ENGINE. I USE FULL SYNTHETIC MOBILE 1 OIL AND CHANGE THE OIL RELIGIOUSLY EVERY 3-5 K MILES. CAR IS DRIVEN GINGERLY AND MAINTAINED IMPECCABLY BY A 65 YEAR OLD WOMAN. EXCESSIVE LOSS OF COOLANT IS ALSO HAPPENING IN TANDEM WITH THE OIL BURNING AND SOMETIMES HEAVY BLUE SMOKE AT START UP IF THE CAR HAS BEEN SITTING OVERNIGHT.
