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 8-cyl

  • 12,000 miles
2004 Tahoe lights (headlamp, running and turn signals) explode or burn out repeatedly due to the lens filling with water. Issue has been occurring since vehicle was new. My fault I have never taken it to the dealer, I have just been replacing the bulbs and draining the water. Maybe GM can look at improvements for the next generation of Tahoe.
