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.

2002 Chevrolet Tracker Owner Comments

problem #3

  • 110,000 miles


Purchased a 2002 Chevy Tracker on 4/30/2002. We've had some minor and some major repairs made, it's never been in any accidents and has been up-kept. Coming home from work my husband noticed the year old brakes were not working properly, was pulling, and started vibrating and shaking at about 40 mph. We later noticed the back brake line was leaking. Two weeks to fix by our mechanic. On the test drive noticed vibration much worse- violent-abrupt shaking! later our mechanic noticed the front suspension cross member is almost rusted out! it has not been repaired yet. I am going to notify manufacturer. Approximate mileage was110,000. Were notifications sent out? don't remember one- I'm pretty adamant about safety! always loved this vehicle, now tons of junk medal sitting in the driveway and down a vehicle!

Consumer called complaining about having problems with the hydraulic brakes. If vehicle was going over 30 mph, and consumer stepped on the brake pedal, vehicle would not stop. Dealer was contacted, and stated that consumer had that problem because the vehicle did not have ABS brakes. Manufacturer was contacted, and told consumer to take vehicle back to dealer and have the brakes tested again.
