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

Aug 102004

Tracker 4WD 4-cyl

  • miles


Driver stepped on accelerator, accelerator stuck, vehicle struck a parked vehicle, driver passed out. When driver awoke, she found she had struck eight parked vehicles and a pedestrian. No citations were issued, no drugs/alcohol, foul play or negligence was found to be the cause of the accident. A recall has been issued for the Suzuki vitara (#03V51200) which is the sister vehicle to the Tracker (same assembly line/parts.) I do not understand why the Tracker - this failure occurred exactly as the recall information described under "consequence." NHTSA personnel told me they did not know why Chevrolet has not recalled the Trackers, and suggested I call Chevrolet and ask. I urge anyone else with a Tracker (1999-2003) who has had a similar problem with the gas pedal sticking to file a complaint...NHTSA said one complaint will not generate an investigation, but that several complaints might. So far, only one Tracker owner has filed a complaint (#10056284) this accident could have resulted in far worse than 9 wrecked vehicles (the Tracker will likely be totaled), an injured pedestrian and an injured driver!!!!!!

I am quite concerned that a recall was issued (# 03V512000) for a faulty accelerator cable on the Suzuki models of vitara, grand vitara and the XL-7 and not the Chevrolet Tracker. It is built and assembled with the identical parts at the same factory on the same assembly line. At this time I am driving around with a potentially dangerous defect in my 2003 Chevrolet Tracker and NHTSA did not have the fore sight to afford me through recall, the same replacement for this identical part along with thousands of other 1999-2003 Chevrolet Tracker owners.
