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.

2007 Chevrolet Tahoe has faulty chrome door handles owned the SUV for a little over a year. All 4 have been replaced but with the same faulty handles. Recently the drivers handle broke again. This time my husband had to tie and hold the door closed to get to the dealership they wanted us to pay for the last 2 B/C it's out of warranty. They said it's a one time comp. The next time we will have to pay. Dealership says they have nothing but problems with the chrome handles. They need to be recalled and replaced with a new design.

Chevy Tahoe 2007 ltz exterior left rear chrome door handle partially detached. Still functional, but loose and will require repair not covered under warranty. Have read that this defect is not uncommon and is completely unacceptable for a $50K car.

I have a 2007 Chevy Tahoe and recently went to get out of the passenger side and sliced my finger open on the door handle. I examined the handle to find that the chrome coating is peeling, and is extremly sharp! definatly will need to be fixed to prevent further injurys! I hope Chevrolet addresses this issue immediatly, I was cut pretty bad, but would hate to have someone especially a child be hurt worse!

Outer door handles frequently break sometimes coming off completely. These handles provide best emergency access to small children in rear child safety seats. Lack of reliable access posses significant safety risk.

My 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe ltz has chrome door handles which are all coming loose. Two of them are so loose that they are about to break off. The other two look as if it is only a matter of time. When you try to use the handle that's loose you can get your fingers caught under the handle and smash them up if you aren't careful.

Two exterior door handles broke off in my hand in the past year. Seems to be more of a problem with the chrome ones than the other types.

My mother-in-law was getting in our 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe. As she was closing the door the handle nicked her finger and cut her. After further investigation, we found that the handle had began to peel and had created a sharp edge. We put a piece of tape over it and have had it that way since. She had a 1" cut on her index finger, which we treated with alcohol and a band-aid.

I have a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe and over the past 3 months, the door handles have begun to come loose and pull off the vehicle. I've done research online and I've found that this is a very common problem. The piece is made of plastic and snaps into place and thus has become loose. All 4 of my doors are experiencing this problem and we've been told that GM is not covering this under warranty (I have an extended warranty as well) because it is considered a "trim" piece for the vehicle. This is another reason why I won't buy another GM car and hope they fail next time. I can't believe the government bailed them out and I would like a return of my portion of taxes given to them for their ignorance, lack of quality and lack of professionalism.

I have a 2007 Chevy Tahoe and am experiencing the interior door handle problem that so many others have. The chrome-like plating is peeling and is razor sharp. The passenger side cut my husband's finger. He said it was very painful and it bled for a while - even started again a day later. The driver's side is doing the same thing, but I have not cut myself - yet.

Peeling metal plating on the driver's door handle is cutting my hand when I open the door; I have taken the vehicle to the Chevrolet dealership, but they say that the VIN number of my Tahoe is not covered by the previous recall.

I have a 2007 Chevy Tahoe and both the driver and passenger interior door handles have began to peel and are very sharp. My wife and myself are very careful when we open or close the doors so as to not cut ourselves, but my 2 year old son was in the front seat while I was cleaning the inside of the car and cut his hand on the door handles. It wasn't bad enough to need stitches but believe this is a defect that GM should replace for free, to prevent worse cuts from happening.

I have a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe lt. Recently the chrome plating on the passenger side door handle just started peeling for no reason. It is sharp as a razor blade and extremely dangerous. My wife already cut her finger very badly. This is definitely a manufacturing issue and an extreme hazard.
