Summary of Complaint

BACK SEAT BEHIND THE DRIVER WILL NOT RELEASE TO LAY FLAT. WE HAVE HAD MECHANICS LOOK AT AND ONLY ONE WAS ABLE TO GET IT TO RELEASE. AS LONG AS THE SEAT IS PUT GENTLY BACK INTO UPRIGHT POSITION IT WILL WORK. HOWEVER, IF IT IS NOT, IT WON'T BUDGE. AT THIS POINT IT WILL NOT RELEASE. THE OTHER SEAT WORKS OKAY FOR NOW BUT WE ARE CONCERNED IT MAY DO THE SAME. WE BELIEVE THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE. IN AN EMERGENCY WE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO GET PEOPLE OUT OF THE THIRD SEAT. HAS THERE BEEN A RECALL TO FIX THE PROBLEM? WHAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT THIS? THANK YOU FOR WHATEVER HELP YOU MAY HAVE. *TR

Summary of Complaint

WE PURCHASED OUR 2003 CHEVROLET TAHOE LT ON JUNE 17, 2007. ON JUNE 19, 2007 THE SPEEDOMETER BEGAN READING 120 MPH WHEN THE TRUCK WAS PARKED. THE SPEEDOMETER FAILED TO RETURN TO ZERO. ADDITIONALLY, WITH THE ONSET OF THIS PROBLEM, THE FUEL GAUGE AND OIL PRESSURE GAUGE WERE READING INACCURATELY. PARKLAND CHEVROLET WAS MADE AWARE OF THE PROBLEM AND IMMEDIATELY DIAGNOSED THIS AS A DEFECT IN THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER THAT THEY INFORMED ME WAS QUITE COMMON ON GM VEHICLES OF THIS YEAR. ADDITIONALLY, I HAVE FOUND OVER 1000 POSTS ON THE INTERNET WHERE THIS SAME PROBLEM HAS OCCURRED TO OTHER GM VEHICLES MODEL YEARS 2001 TO 2006. WE ARE CURRENTLY AWAITING REPAIR PARTS FOR THIS VEHICLE. *AK

Summary of Complaint

I OWN A 2003 CHEVROLET TAHOE WITH 57,000 MILES. LAST WEEK MY SPEEDOMETER STARTED ACTING EROTICALLY. I WAS TRAVELING DOWN THE HIGHWAY AT 50 MPH, SECONDS LATER I CHECKED MY SPEEDOMETER AND IT WAS READING 94 MPH. AT FIRST I WAS SHOCKED, BUT I REALIZED I WAS STILL FOLLOWING THE SAME CARS IN RUSH-HOUR TRAFFIC AND IT WOULD HAVE BEEN IMPOSSIBLE TO BE TRAVELING OVER 90. BY THE TIME I GOT HOME THE SPEEDOMETER WAS STUCK AT 0 MPH. SINCE THEN IT HAS BEEN EROTIC. THE SPEEDOMETER WILL REGISTER 30 WHEN I'M TRAVELING AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS, OR NOT REGISTER AT ALL. I AM NOT AS CONCERNED WHEN I AM DRIVING THE VEHICLE, BECAUSE I CAN GAUGE MY SPEED OFF THE TACHOMETER. MY SIXTEEN-YEAR OLD DAUGHTER OR MY WIFE HOWEVER IS ANOTHER STORY. IF THEY ARE ON THE HIGHWAY GOING 55 OR 60 AND THE SPEEDOMETER IS ONLY REGISTERING 30, THEY MIGHT INCREASE THEIR SPEED IN ERROR AND TRAVEL MUCH FASTER WHICH COULD BE VERY DANGEROUS. THIS CAN HAVE GRAVE CONSEQUENCES IF ON A TWO LANE HIGHWAY WITH SPEED LIMITED CURVES. I CANNOT BELIEVE WITH ALL THE COMPLAINTS LOGGED ABOUT THIS CHEVROLET IS NOT RECALLING, OR REPAIRING THE DEFECTIVE GAUGE. I HAVE BEEN DRIVING FOR OVER 35-YEARS AND HAVE NEVER HAD A SPEEDOMETER MALFUNCTION. *NM

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING THE TAHOE CLOSE TO HOME I STARTED TO SMELL OF BURNING AND I COULD SEE SMOKE COMING UP FROM THE DASH. I PULLED OVER AND BY THEN THE WHOLE CAR WAS FILLED WITH SMOKE AND I COULD SEE FLAMES COMING FROM UNDER THE DASH ON THE PASSENGER SIDE. I TRIED TO PUT OUT THE FLAMES (NOT RECOMMENDED) BUT THE FIRE JUST SPREAD UPWARDS INTO THE DASH AND WAS OBVIOUSLY OUT OF CONTROL. I LEFT THE VEHICLE AND CALLED 911 AND WITHIN MINUTES THE WHOLE FRONT OF THE CAR WAS ENGULFED IN FLAMES. THE POLICE AND FIRE SERVICE ARRIVED AND EVENTUALLY THE FIRE WAS EXTINGUISHED AFTER IT HAD BURNED THROUGH MOST OF THE VEHICLE. FORTUNATELY I WAS ON MY OWN AND I SUFFERED NO INJURIES EXCEPT A FEW MINOR BURNS TO MY HANDS. I AM GUESSING THE FIRE MAY HAVE STARTED WITH THE BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR WIRING WHICH IS A PROBLEM MANY OTHERS HAVE REPORTED. *TR

Summary of Complaint

TAKATA RECALL, TODAY, MAY 31, 2019, I DROVE MY TRUCK TO A MEETING AT 1:30 IN THE AFTERNOON AND PARKED MY VEHICLE IN THE PARKING LOT (IT WAS STATIONARY IN A CITY PARKING LOT). WHEN I RETURNED TO MY CAR AFTER THE MEETING AT 3:30 IN THE AFTERNOON I OPEN MY CAR AND THE INTERIOR WAS ENGULFED IN SMOKE. A COMPONENT OF THE POWER SEAT ON THE DRIVERS SIDE STARTED THE FIRE. IT WAS FORTUNATE NO ONE WAS IN THE TRUCK AT THE TIME AND THE WINDOWS WERE CLOSED. AFTER THE FIRE IGNITED AND USED UP ALL THE OXYGEN IN THE INTERIOR THE FIRE BURNED OUT ON IT'S OWN. I DID CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT HE HAD NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE. (I'VE INCLUDED THE FIRE DEPARTMENT INVESTIGATORS CARD AND I CAN OBTAIN A REPORT IF NEEDED). THE INVESTIGATOR WAS THE ONE THAT DETERMINED WHERE THE FIRE STARTED. HE EXPLAINED THAT THE TOP LAYER OF THE SEAT UPHOLSTERY HAS SOME FIRE RETARDANT BUT THE UNDERSIDE DOES NOT. YOU CAN SEE THAT THE SEAT WAS BURNED FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP, THE ELECTRICAL WAS STILL OPERATIONAL AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE LIGHTS THAT ARE ON IN THE PHOTOS. I CAN FIND NO RECALL ON THIS ISSUE AND YOUR ASSISTANCE WOULD BE APPRECIATED. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPEN IF I HAD BEEN BEHIND THE WHEEL WHILE DRIVING AND OR HAD MY DAUGHTER WITH ME. I AM THE SOLE OWNER OF THIS CHEVY TAHOE SINCE 2003. I WAS COMPLETELY STOCK AND NO OUTSIDE WORK HAS EVER BEEN DONE TO IT. I HAVE HAD IT REGULARLY SERVICED AND IT WAS RUNNING GREAT. I HAVE NEVER NOTICED ANY PROBLEMS WITH MY SEATS. I DO NOT SMOKE AND HAD NO OTHER COMBUSTIBLES IN THE CAR. PLEASE SEE PHOTO'S ATTACHED. ## VIN PASSED ## CHEVY TAHOE 2003 ##
