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.

Service air bag and service 4 wheel drive light always comes on. I know their has been a recall with this model recall # 06102 on the air bags, but this VIN number doesn't come up. U-tube shows a common problem with the spring in the transfer case about service 4WD. See recall # 06V4170000 & 1233...updated 04/12/16

I have a 2006 Chevrolet Tahoe ls 4WD I bought brand new May 2006. I have had it in the shop 3 or 4 times because it keeps clanking/clunking loudly when I slow down or stop. It clanks when I go over a bump. If I'm driving down the road at 40mph+ and slow down to 20mph or less, then the Tahoe clunks loud enough people on the street can hear it. The dealership(s) can not find the problem (one dealership had the nerve to tell me it was my 3rd row seat). It sounds as though a wheel is going to fall off or the transmission is going to drop. The last dealership replaced the hub assembly on one of the wheels, but that didn't help...still clunk, clank. I can't tell if the noise is coming from the back for sure, but it sounds like it. My warranty is about expire and I'm afraid this is going to be a major issue/problem if it's not resolved.

Part 49624 - transfer case for 2006 Chevrolet Tahoe. Seems to be a failing part in majority of 4 wheel drive GM SUVS. Keeps happening over & over again.
