1998 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #2

I was driving on the ih-93 nb at 55 mph. Suddenly the car began pulling to the right. I stopped and checked the tires, but did not see any problems. All four tires were inflated to the specs (35 psi). I kept driving, and after 20-25 miles I heard a sound as if something was rubbing in the front passenger fender area. I began slowing down and wanted to stop. At that moment my front right tire separated. It was a primewell valera ht 235/75-15 tire, installed at a Firestone shop in plaistow, nh in November, 2014 with a few hundred miles on it.

I own a 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe in which I had to pay over $900 to have repaired to repair/replace front hub assemblies. This is for the same work that GM has recalled 1999 and newer vehicles that are used in areas of the country that use road salt. Those repairs were made just prior the recall that I think your Agency forced GM to call for the very same issue. I contacted GM and was told that they only recall vehicles based on the number of complaints by year. The fact that the design is identical in my and the 1999 model was a non issue as far as they are concerned. I intend to look into a civil suit since I have no idea about how much time will be involved, but even though this may not help me, I thought that I could at least add my experience and name to see if it will generate sufficient numbers for GM to care about doing the right thing and adding this year to the recall. I am using the date that I first wrote to GM but my repairs were done 8/12/04. They assigned service request # 1 387872013 and told me that they were not even sure if I live in a state that is subject to the recall. They are wrong about that as well. Although I was not injured, it is only because I spent my own money when I went in complaining about the same thing that is now part of the recall.
