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.

  • 38,000 miles
So far, 3 of the 4 exterior door handles have broken for no apparent reason. These are cheaply made plastic, not designed to handle the force of simply opening a door. This car is otherwise in great condition, has very low mileage, and is usually only driven with one occupant. The passenger side doors have not been opened very often for a car with mileage in the low 40's. this would be dangerous to small children or people with thin fingers as it would be quite easy to get a finger caught between the broken door handle and the body of the car. The handles do not look broken. The act of opening the door causes the handle to pull away from the body of the door. A quick internet search reveals that this is a common problem with this vehicle. A dealer told me today that they replaced 8 handles for 1 customer. That's at a price between $250 and $300 per handle. I was going to begin looking for a new car today. If this is how Chevrolet stands behind it's vehicles, they will not be included in my search.

My door handles are coming off!! I have the chrome style handles. I went to open the driver door to get in and ripped the handle right off the door almost fell back it came off so easily... so I took it to the dealer who said $205 to fix it I'm holding off and now that I have been using the passenger door this one is now coming off!! the inside handles are flaking/ peeling and are really sharp as well it has cut me a few times. This is terrible and I shouldn't have to pay to replace handles on a door!! I've never had this prob w any other make this is my first GM and my first Chevrolet and will prob be my last bc its made so cheaply I will reconsider if they recall this.

Exterior door handles - front passenger door, both rear passenger doors. Bolt has broken on all 3 handles and has pulled away from the body of the vehicle. This seems to be a common occurrence for all GM vehicles with these style of exterior door handles. Someone could fall and get injured will trying to open a door.

Tahoe 8-cyl

  • 62,000 miles
I was driving along and the speed control just stopped working. I reset it and the first bump in the road it stopped working. We took it for repair and it worked for about a yr. Then the same problem. We had it fixed again and it lasted about another 2 yrs. It has again failed several times to work at all and then you can get in the car and start driving and it will work. Currently, it won't come on at all...this apparently is a problem with the Chevy Tahoe and needs to be recalled. It is very dangerous to drive at 60 mph and all of a sudden it drops quickly in speed. Also, our Tahoe is garage kept and about a month ago, I noticed a crack in the dash board on the drivers side. I see that this too is a problem with thousands of Tahoe. We have had several electrical problems where the door windows stop working, the seats won't move and have had that fixed twice. We also have had the rear door stop working whenever it feels like. We have had that in to the dealer on three occasions. We gave up taking it back. Here again no recalls. We also have problems with the tire pressure monitoring system. They work when they want to. Why haven't these items been recalled by GM. The dealers know that its a problem, but we still have to pay the bill to get it fixed. If you look on here, thousands of people have the same issues. We have owned many Chevy including corvette and 2 Tahoe but since GM won't stand behind their products like they should, we will be buying another brand, Nissan or Honda next time.
