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.

Right front frame mount for stabilizer link rotted/rusted off. Chevy would not fix, recommended I go to a body shop for repair. Welder had to fabricate a steel mount to the frame to bolt stabilizer link to. Left side has started to deteriorate also.

Ok- just to let U know we no longer have this vehicle. I was to scared that my family would get seriously injured in this vehicle. The stability track would cause this vehicle to decrease engine speed. I would have to pull over on a highway, shut the vehicle off and reset until I could bring it to the dealer. After seven times at dealership after several years, I could not trust it. It was not very dependable. Please now that the light has been brought on regarding GM and the Cruze vehicle, please recall this year model. So scared someone will be seriously injured. I have all records on this vehicle. ( sold it and moved onto a Honda Pilot) never ever would I recommend this year vehicle to anyone. Please take my information seriously. Thank you.

This is the second incident. Was driving at 45 mph and made a turn. The Tahoe loss power and stalled. The computer read reduced engine power and stability trak off. This is bothersome being that this can happen anywhere at anytime. Afraid of possible accident or worse.

Peeling interior paint - two of the four doorhandles paint is peeling causing sharp and jagged edges resulting in cut fingers. Brakes - all brakes and rotors bad at 39,000 miles and had to be replaced. Way too early! now the brakes squeal all the time, are soft and had to be flushed 2 times within 6 months of each other. Windows - continuing issues with the windows screeching when going up and down. Attempted to fix three times and just keeps repeating. Is starting to scuff/scratch the glass and leave oil streaks. Was told this is normal. Rear liftgate (manual) - struts freeze every winter so that the tailgate does not go up all the way. Have hit head on this numerous times. Been replaced 3 times and counting.

We have had several problems with this vehicle. We've had tires replaced twice, rotors, and brakes resurfaced, and rear-end dropped so the springs could be adjusted. But the biggest problem has been with the roaring in the motor. The dealership has had the vehicle for more than 20 days on and off looking for this noise. I've had it to them 8 times or so trying to find it. The noise didn't start until around 3,000 miles, and gets worse and easier to duplicate with more miles. The first 7 visits they said they didn't know what it was and was clueless to it, but the last visit, and 4 days of it, they and GM decided it was a "characteristic" of the vehicle, and nothing could be done. On the otherhand, one mechanic says it's coming from the drivetrain, but others say it's an improper balance in the motor. Either way I'm paying too much money for whatever it is!

After only one month of purchase auto start feature does not work unless you were 3 feet away. The vehicle once sat over night would make a really loud clattering sound when you would turn on the engine. I took the car into the dealer and told them about the problems the dealer indicated that they had to reprogram the software in the Tahoe to reprogram auto start. The next morning I was called and informed that they were unable to reproduce the clattering sound and that nothing wrong was detected with the vehicle so that it was ready for pick up. Everything was O.K. for about a couple of months. Auto start wasn't working again. At my third service visit to the dealer I noticed the tires were starting to get wasted towards the inside. The vehicle only had about 5,000 miles on it at the time. When the dealer was informed he indicated that the tires needed to be rotated. After about three tire rotations I noticed the tires getting warn out pretty badly on the inside. He indicated that the problem could be that it needs a front end allingnment only after the vehicle having less than 12,000 miles. The front end alignment was done on the this day that the tires are wasted more on the insides than the outsides.this last month we have had a problem again with the loud clattering sound in the engine when we start the has gotten alot worse I took it into the dealer and they said that they were aware of the problem and that it appears to be oil build up in the air compressor that when it sits for more thatn 3 hours it apparently makes this loud sound when you start the engine. He indicated that Chevy is looking into the problem and to this day has not done anything about the problem.I was furious when they refused to do anything about a problem that Chevy well knows is a manufacturer defect.
