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 Hybrid Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 292013

Tahoe Hybrid 4WD 8-cyl

  • 60,000 miles


I was driving in cruise control at 55 mph on a highway on a dry sunny day. No weather issues. Suddenly, the car accelerated and veered off across three lanes of the highway, across the median, through the guardrail in the median and into oncoming traffic. The brakes locked up and the car continued at high speed back into the median, clipping the guardrail three more times. When I got my senses back, I turned the ignition off and pulled out the key. The car rolled to a stop in the median. The only reason there were no injuries, is that there was little traffic on this Sunday afternoon and I didn't hit anyone in the oncoming traffic lane. It was terrifying to completely lose control of the vehicle. It took off on its own and I had absolutely no control to stop it. I don't use cruise control any more, hoping that solves the problem. I had $6,000 of damage, but I felt incredibly lucky to be alive.
