2003 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #2

May 112009


  • 80,000 miles


My 2003 Tahoe lt has a defective air bag. The light on my panel displayed this when my car had approximately 80K miles. I reported this to carriage motors in temecula, ca. They refused to have this repaired at Chevrolet factory cost. I again turned in my Tahoe, today, May 11, 2009, and the shop manager frank spizer refused to have this fixed but instead offered me 20% off a repair cost of $699 I refused this discount as I firmly believe that since my 2003 Tahoe has never been in an accident, that there should be no reason for the air bag to fail like this. I want for GM to pay for this and to issue a recall to all Tahoe owners who have this same malady. The manager of the authorized Chevrolet repair service at carriage motors is frank spizer, (951) 694-6060.

  • 10,000 miles
- the contact owns a 2003 Tahoe that the passenger 's side airbag deployed unexpectedly on 1/27/07, a warning light turned on at that time. The contact has not taken the vehicle to the dealer because of a warranty issue. The contact complained since this was a 3 year old vehicle and has been in no accidents. The contact stated that six months after purchasing the vehicle the steering shaft vibrated when making a left or a right turn, the dealer replaced it at no charge. This resolved the issue. However, 7 months later the vibration restarted. The dealer lubricated the parts and it worked again. The contact wanted to file a complaint since this problem was still unresolved. However, the vehiclewas now out of warranty. The current mileage was 44,796 and the failure mileage was 10,000.
