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.

2011 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 41,000 miles


I was driving on the highway at approx 65 mph. The truck dropped speed rapidly and without warning. Lights starting flashing and stating reduced engine power - service stabilitrak. When attempting to pull over I applied the brakes and the truck lunged forward. This happened three times before the engine sputtered and shut off - on the highway.diagnostic tests show it was error P2135 - the throttle body component. GM/Chevrolet states this is not under warranty. The truck is less than 2 years old. Clearly there is a recall needed as this mimics Toyota's issue with not stopping when the brake is applied and the rapid deceleration without warning is a clear safety issue.

I was driving on the highway with my child, when then engine light came on. Seconds later the "stabilitrak off and traction control off" came on. "service traction" came on and within seconds the power steering left and the brakes seemed as if they were not working properly. Thank god there was not a lot of traffic!! I got over as the engine sputtered and finally died. This could have been a tragedy!! I have read many are having this problem and it needs to be fixed before someone really gets hurt!!
