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.

Tahoe 8-cyl

The front drivers door handle snapped off, then the drivers side passenger snapped off about a month later. I paid to have them fixed at the dealership and now the 3rd door handle snapped off. The last one was the rear passenger side.

The dash has cracked behind the passenger side air bag for no apparent reason. I am afraid if the bag deploys it will throw the piece as a projectile and hit the passenger. Many complaints on the internet, GM is selectively assisting in repair. I was informed they would not help me because I have an aftermarket radio and alarm, neither of which is anywhere near the passenger side.

Both of my children have been cut several times on numerous occasions by the peeling of the chrome on the door handles in the back seats. The dash is cracking which I have seen this complaint on many many 2007 GM SUV's. would like to see something done about these problems since it happens to be a big complaint by many owners.

  • 35,000 miles
All 4 of my exterior door handles have come unattached on at least one end. This started before my warranty expired but continues to happen so I have to pay out of pocket. 2 that have been previously repaired by dealer have broken again. Dealer quotes $300+ to make this repair, absolutely ridiculous and should be covered by GM. Cant believe this has not been addressed yet as I am finding so many others with this exact problem.

While I was getting my interior handles repaired since they have cracked, I was made aware that one of my door handles was falling off. The interior handles are covered under a recall but not the exterior handle. I was told by the dealer that it happens all the time on Tahoe and a quick "google" search confirmed the issue. This problem should also be covered under a recall. I had to pay $160 to repair the handle.

2007 Chevy Tahoe ltz 3 out of 4 exterior door handles on outside are broke. Not only is it aggravating but also safety issue if child's fingers get stuck or if there is emergency or accident and someone is trying to get in to assist you. I have read several complaints of the same thing online.

My 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe lt was poorly made. The inside door handle is chipping and it sliced my two fingers open this morning. I think it should be recalled! also my door panel on the outside has been chipping because it is plastic. Come on the vehicles are expensive! use better products GM! I will never by another GM and I don't believe I should have to pay to fix there cheap decisions for this car.

problem #4

  • 48,000 miles
I was at a stop light, and the problem happened unexpectedly when I pressed on the gas when the light turned green. My car moved forward just slightly, jerked hard to a complete stop, and it wouldn't drive anymore. I was able to get pushed to the side in neutral, but needed a tow to the dealer. The only working gears were R, 3, 2, and 1. bringing it into the dealer, they confirmed there was a problem with the transmission. I had done some research when this happened and noticed that a lot of people had the same problem, all in the same type of scenario where they were at a complete stop. Second issue, not nearly as major is the stabilitrak. The light goes on and off constantly, pretty much from the first year I've had the car. And lastly, the interior chrome door handles have all peeled off and cut me and my passengers several times. The exterior door handles have come loose, the fuel pocket is completely broken, and after a heavy rain, water gets trapped inside the shell of the back door and sloshes around while I'm driving. I have to remove the bottom lining of the door for the trapped water to be released.

2007 Chevy Tahoe with chrome exterior door handles. Passenger side handle broke off. Has significant opportunity to pinch fingers. Driver's side door handle also loose. Was informed this is a common occurrence with this vehicle. If this is a known issue, it needs to be resolved!

  • 45,000 miles
I have a 2007 Tahoe and the dashboard is cracked in two places. One is above the stearing wheel and the other is above the glove box on the passenger side. Ive always used a windshield protector when parked outside and the truck is parked in my garage every night. This seems to be a serious problem with this make and model vehicle and Chevrolet needs to correct it!
