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.

problem #1

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 43,320 miles
Vehicle with 43,000 miles experienced major transmission failure. While entering intersection, vehicle came out of gear and accelerated as if in neutral, then clunking into gear and lunging forward. Maintenance schedules show that transmission requires no servicing until 50,000, yet warranty only lasts until 36,000. Manufacturer is misrepresenting life of transmission causing unsafe conditions due to a defective product.
