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.

2004 Chevrolet Tracker Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 262004


  • miles


I purchased a new 2004 Chevy Tracker. I had put 260 miles on it in short trips. On March 26, 2004 I was attempting to back up and turn left to leave a large parking lot in a rural area. My attempts to turn the wheels failed. While turning the sterring wheel the tires moved on an inch or so. The sterring wheel "Chevy logo" was upside down. The car was towed to the dealership and I was finally told that "four pins had fallen out of the sterring mechanism." I was livid. I had been driving all over the place with my grandchildren along and if I had been anywhere else beside this rural location we could have all been killed. I refused to leave with the car and insisted on a new one. After several hours of debate a sales manager took matters into his own hands and told me that GM would buy the car back. It took two weeks to get all of the paperwork complete but the new one is mine. I hope this was a fluke and I am glad to be alive.
