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 #4

Tracker 6-cyl

  • 142,347 miles


Driving on expressway car started to vibrate and shake severely. The car was pulling to the left and steering became difficult, experiencing partial loss of control. I pulled over to shoulder of highway and upon investigation noticed the cross beam was rusted through and the left drivers side control arm had broke free. I had the car towed to the nearest Chevrolet dealer and was told the vehicle was three months past the extended coverage. I had the Tracker checked previously for this problem when I received a letter from Chevrolet about a possible issue and was told there was not an issue with my car. Really! if Chevrolet knew there was a safety issue, it should have been repaired to begin with.
