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.

2010 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #3

Feb 012014


  • 50,000 miles


This has happened numerous times in the past year and a half. When accelerating after a stop or slowing down, there is a "pause" in acceleration. I hit the gas and the vehicle slows down significantly before it jerks forward at an accelerated speed. For example, when I'm making a left turn and hit the gas it will slow down and then shoot forward really quickly. Sometimes the forward jerk is so powerful it will make the tires squall as if I'm purposefully trying to "burn out." This happens when I stop at light or stop sign, when I'm reversing out of a drive way, as I make left turns and there's a speeding vehicle coming at me and the Tahoe decides to decelerate in the middle of the road...driving conditions don't matter, whether on a highway or city street, doesn't matter. It happens all. The. Time. I'm afraid it will just stall while I'm making a turn and I'll be T-boned by an 18 wheeler! I'm afraid to go anywhere with my kids in the vehicle!

The contact owns a 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe. While driving 45 mph, the vehicle failed to accelerate when the accelerator pedal was depressed and the engine reduce power warning indicator illuminated. The independent mechanic cleaned the throttle, but the failure recurred. The mechanic was unable to diagnose the cause of the failure. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 100,000.
