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

May 212008

Tahoe LS 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 147,500 miles


In May I had a terrible vibration under acceleration between 45 and 75 PH, I brought the Tahoe to the dealer, and was told I needed a new transmission. When I asked how come? Since I don't tow a trailer, beat on it, and have it serviced regularly, they said, "we don't know why, just repair it!"

I didn't have the cash, and said I would be back. On the way home I stopped at my tire place for my free rotation and balancing, and they showed me the tires as badly worn, (rotated every 5000 miles, just plain wore out). After replacing the tires the "Transmission Vibration" went away. So much for highly trained Chevy Techs.

My Tire dealer saved me $2400 bucks!
