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.

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

The Chevrolet Tahoe tailgate lock do not have an emergency release inside the car. The tailgate actuator has stop functioning on my car and there no way for me to open the door. Not even trying to open with a key, because there is no key option to open the door on this model on the outside tailgate. Since, Chevrolet failed to place a release inside the car. I feel that this is a serious life or death issue. If my kids are in the car trying to escape a fire or car submerged under water. There will be no way for them to escape. This item need to be corrected and fixed. I'm finding several incidents on the internet were the locking unit has failed. This is a serious safety issue.
