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.

2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 182011

Tahoe 8-cyl

  • 81,000 miles


I was on the freeway in pretty heavy traffic. The traffic started to disperse and as I accelerated, the notification chime came on and the dash message said "stabilitrack off, traction control off, engine power is reduced". I could not drive any faster than about 20mph and it was jerking a bit. I pulled over and pushed the onstar button. They sent a tow truck and after sitting on the road for about an hour, when I started the truck again, the message was gone. I had it towed to the dealer anyway, and was told that it is a sensor problem, which is not covered under the powertrain warranty. I have a friend that has a 2007 Tahoe and she had the same problem. Also, according to a few message boards, many other people have had this problem also.
