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.

2001 Chevrolet Tracker Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 162007

Tracker 2.0L 4 cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 65,000 miles


Will be checking brake fluid flow valve, and replacing fluid - although was nominal in reservoir. Will update - other checks to make.

Update from May 26, 2009: The latest thought on this increasing power steering stiffness is that it involves the lower steering column knuckle joints (gradually seizing up). The cost is over $600 for the part. Outside temperature still affects the problem - the warmer the temperature the easier the steering.

Am getting a second opinion from a Suzuki dealer as my experience in this city has proven that GM mechanics do not have enough time on the Tracker (Suzuki) to diagnose important problems.

The new symptom with the steering is that it appears to be binding at various positions when the wheel is turned from wheel lock to wheel lock.
