2005 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

  • miles


"takata recall" about a month ago my truck (ABS) started active itself and when driving it will act as if it's about to stop on its own and jerked to the left. Then shortly after it start making a loud noise then the noise gotten louder where others can hear it not only me. I had one of the wheels hub replace and it stop for a day and continue and now it's to the point where it's beginning to shake while driving, and ride different. I have three kids who I have to worry about.

The contact owned a 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe. While driving approximately 50 mph, the rear driver side wheel became detached from the vehicle and caused the contact to lose control of the vehicle. The contact crashed into a wooden pole, which crashed through the front window. The vehicle flipped over three times and landed upside down. The air bags failed to deploy. A police report was filed. The contact sustained broken bones and injuries that required medical attention. The vehicle was towed to the towing company. The vehicle was destroyed. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 131,000.

ABS and tc light came on. Checked at shop and was told the speed sensor was bad, brakes were fine, but no ABS. Traveling down highway, and vehicle started making a lot of noise (metal on metal, etc). Had car towed, and the hub was bad. Was told we were lucky the wheel did not come off. Had to replace hub assembly and brake pads.

Drove 2 miles to store nearby. Parked vehicle went inside store. When leaving I was told I could not use this exit because of vehicle fire. Fire investigator told me front left wheel bearing overheated causing bearing grease to act as accelerant causing total vehicle fire. Vehicle completely engulfed within one and one half minutes. Vehicle total loss.
