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.

2009 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #1

I own a 2009 Chevy Tahoe hybrid (purchased in early March of 2009). I was backing out of the garage with my family when I realized the brakes weren't working to slow us out of the driveway. I drove through the subdivision at 15mph and I couldn't get it to stop! in reviewing online, there are several people who have had the identical problem with this failure. The "service brakes" and "service stabilitrak" lights came on. The dealership stated they hadn't heard about this and they've ordered a "control module" to fix it. Many people on the internet have returned the car and others are still dealing with the problem. If GM knows of a brake failure issue and hasn't ordered a recall yet, I just don't understand.
