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.

Print this page Notes: This might be the Tahoe sweet spot. The 2013 has a great safety rating (as long as you don't roll it over), tons of room and few complaints. What it doesn't have is the interior accessory problems of the older or newer generations.

  • 85,000 miles
During pursuit training a 2013 Tahoe suffered a catastrophic failure of the wheel suspension assembly. This is the third identical incident in the past month. The other two vehicles were 2014 police pursuit Tahoe. In all instances the front wheel assembly failed during a turn. The race or inner dust cover for the wheel bearing assembly separated. This resulted in the bearings coming loose, and the wheel subsequently folding under. In two instances the vehicle was in danger of a rollover situation. This occurred during emergency vehicle training at a regional academy and the vehicles belonged to two different police agencies. The two prior incidents involved vehicles with under 5000 miles.
