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

problem #1

Jan 122006

Tahoe 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,500 miles


: the consumer stated the problem began as a cracking sound while turning the wheel in either direction. The vehicle was taken to the dealership and an adjustment to the control arm was made. One month later, the problem still persisted. On December 29, 2005 the cracking sound was heard again, the vehicle stopped and the throttle would not depress. The vehicle would not gain momentum in either of the gears. The dealership determined the failure was with the differential unit, they noticed either the drive train or the axle was damaged. A heavy duty removal unit was used to remove and replace the axle and differential unit. The vehicle was picked up from the dealership yesterday and on January 12, 2006 the cracking noise was heard again.
