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.

We have a 2005 Chevy Tahoe and we recently encountered a problem - the liftgate will not unlock. We discovered that is no manual key entry and there is no internal unlock system. This is a major safety issue : repeat: There is no internal unlock system which is a huge safety issue in the event of an emergency exit needed - especially with the third seat installed. The only way to unlock the liftgate is via remote key - but the lock does not respond to the remote key so the liftgate cannot open. There are tremendous amounts of complaints posted on the internet forums and we can not believe that there is no recall on this horribly unsafe situation - not to mention equipment failure. What is being done about it? thank you.
