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.

2003 Chevrolet Tracker Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 222008

Tracker 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 59,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Chevrolet Tracker. When the contact applies pressure to the brakes, the vehicle vibrates excessively. When she attempted to stop the vehicle, the brakes failed without warning. She had to apply the emergency brake in order to stop. The vehicle has been taken to a professional mechanic on several occasions, in which they replaced the brakes, cylinders, and calipers. The vehicle continues to fail because the failure cannot be corrected. The failure and current mileages were 59,000.
