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.

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.

The rear exterior door handles had broken off. It was originally repaired by a Chevrolet dealer; however it broke again within a couple of months. It has since broken about 10 times and should be subject to a recall or a class action lawsuit. This was a $55K vehicle brand new when I purchased it in 2007. This is also a safety issue as people can break in. In addition, it's not safe for children to open the door as the handle separates from the body and pushes back in, possibly causing a child's hand to get caught in between the body and the underside of the handle.

The outside door handles on the driver's side and passenger's side front both broke off. Also, the chrome on the inside driver's and passenger's front is cracking off the door handles and I sliced my left hand pretty badly. Considering this is a $55,000+ vehicle and there appears to be a lot of complaints about the same thing, there should be some sort of recall.

The exterior door handles are coming loose. Both the driver and passenger front door handles. They still open the door but I am afraid they will break off completely in the near future.

Rear driverside exterior door handle broke. Have read hundreds of complaints on Chevy blogs....this needs to be a recall for GM-handles brake regularly, very costly to fix, and for most of us outside of warranty. Please help the consumers.

Me and my daughter have been cut on our hands because both the passenger and drivers side interior chrome handle is peeling off. I had to put electrical tape on it, since both are as sharp as a razor.

Tahoe 8-cyl

  • 57,468 miles
I purchased a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe, 2wd, LT1 on 02/20/2013. I immediately noticed that the chrome on the interior door handles was flaking off. I received a cut to my hand when opening one of the interior doors. Both the driver and passenger interior door handles are coming apart. I have read several complaints online with this model and it appears that no one has done anything about it. There is also a crack in the dash between the defrost vent and the airbag on the passenger side. A search of the internet reveals several complaints from hundreds of consumers who have reported these same flaws with this same model. Also, the trim on the steering wheel and radio buttons are peeling off. The 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe seems to be plagued with these three part failures and someone needs to look into this. A cut may not seem severe, until the cut doesn't heal properly, leaves permanent scaring and possibly the added threat of infection. I have taken this vehicle to my local Chevrolet dealer who stated that these issues were not covered by any warranty or recall. I am interested in a class action lawsuit to correct these flaws. This is the 3rd Tahoe I have owned and considered myself a loyal Tahoe owner. This is the only model year that I have ever had an issue with. I have photographs showing the flaws and associated vehicle mileage.

I went to pull on the exterior door handle on the driver's side and the whole door handle separated from the body of the car! this is the second time this has happened to us. The first time it happened the car was under warranty so it didn't cost us anything to get it fixed. This time however it is not so I'm sure we will be out a nice chunk of change to get it fixed. Poor quality considering this is a $50K+ vehicle! GM needs to issue a recall on the exterior door handles.

  • 60,000 miles
Door handles, exterior, passenger side. Product design or manufacturing failure... or both. Both door handles have failed. First, the rear handle became disconnected inside the door allowing the entire handle assembly to rotate away from the body of the car, causing the handle to become inoperable. Second, the front passenger exterior handle, operable portion, came off completely, rendering it impossible to enter the front passenger compartment from the exterior. It is clear from multiple internet posts this is a product design and/or manufacturing failure and should be covered by the manufacturer as a recall. The manufacturer is clearly aware of this issue and the peeling chrome layer that causes personal injury. Chevrolet and its dealers are profiting from this defect at the expense of consumers. Recall should be ordered! and consumers who have paid for the repair should be reimbursed 100%.

2 of the 4 door handles have broken off, they are chrome and expensive to repair. It becomes a safety issue when you can't afford to replace them and children's fingers go between the handle and body of the car. This is an issue that many owners have experienced with this specific automobile.
