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 #1

Mar 012005

Tracker 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles


My wife was driving. She slowed to approximately 10-15 mph for a dip in the road that contained water. After going through the dip/water she started to accelerate but began fish-tailing. She immediately took her foot off the accelerator and pumped the brake and tried to correct the fish-tailing. However, the car continued out-of-control. She then slammed on the brake and held in down, but could not stop the vehicle. It traveled approximately 375 feet, first going off the road to the right, over a curb, hit a chain link fence, careened across the road, over another curb, through about six feet of 12 inch boulders and through the wall of a building. The only way we can explain this, is that the accelerated had to have malfunctioned. In fact, when the vehicle finally came to a stop, the engine was still racing and the rear wheel had dug a six inch hole in the dirt from spinning. N addition, the airbags did not deploy.
