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 #4

Tahoe 8-cyl

  • 125,000 miles


First problem is that the instrument cluster stops and starts working at random times not knowing how fast you're going. Chevy said they were familiar with the problem but would only fix it up to 80,000 miles. Not sure what kind of recall dose that. Second problem is when I got a flat tire, I nor the auto roadside assistance man could get the spare tire down. The car stranded until I took the entire wheel off the car and to the repair shop to get fixed and brought it back to re-install it. The dealer has been the only place that can actually get it to unlatch and admits it a bad design. I'm always apprehensive about getting a flat and being stranded.

Sigma stampede radials for my 04 Tahoe were purchased in Feb. 2009 when my truck had 86,000 miles. The tires were supposed to have a 65,000 mile warranty. At 133,00 miles, the front right tire came apart on the interior side wall all the way around with 1 separation on exterior side wall. No injury or damage occurred because I always drive slowly and was on city street at time. Inspection of other 3 tires shows many slits/cracks on exterior sidewalls of 2 of 3 tires. Seller has done some compensation. However, I think the tire needs to be recalled. The situation of the tire coming apart could be very serious at high speed.

1) normal driving, some highway of not more then 3 hrs in one direction and around town. 2-3) el dorado ztr 265/70/16 - tire separation of 2 of 4 bought. A 3rd is on its way to the same problem. Avoided a crash by only a few miles as wheel vibration was extreme. I had purchased the tires from "wheel city" in corona ca. And they would not fix the problem. I did contact someone at el dorado in Pennsylvania who connected me with a "cooper" tire dealer in calif. To pro-rate my defective tires. 2 of 4, although 4 were desired, were replaced. Dot # tire 3: UT72 emd 0607 G9L1 tire 4: UT72 emd 0607 G09L.
