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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1. door locks failed. Have been replaced multiple times. As a result, my 7 week old baby got locked in the car in 100 degree weather in August. It continues to be an issue and often I have to resort in climbing through the back tailgate. 2. stabilitrack and traction control lights flash. Sometimes after these lights flash, my vehicle will go into "reduced power mode" on its on which is very dangerous going 65 mph or pulling out from somewhere. wipers work when they want to...ever since the two recalls Chevrolet released, the work intermittently when they want to. 4. major electrical issues with these vehicles....I have replaced the battery four times and something continues to drain it.

The contact owns a 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe. The contact observed that all four exterior passenger door handles were stuck in position. The occupants were unable to enter or exit the vehicle. The contact had to activate the automatic windows in order to allow access to release the exterior door handle. The doors would not respond to the keyless remote. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the technician advised that the failure was due to a defect in the door lock actuator. The vehicle was repaired. The failure mileage was 47,000.
