i have a 2003 tahoe and have had the speedometer stick a number of times. i have taken it in for repair several times however the service tech could not duplicate the condition so they told me not to repair the issue because of the cost. gm is now offering a "special coverage" that extends the warranty of the instrument panel, however only if the tahoe has less than 70,000 miles or you have owned the vehicle under 7 years whichever occurs first. i feel that gm has known about this issue and should issue a full recall to correct this issue. this is a very dangerous issue that needs to be addressed. *tr

i received a letter from chevrolet stating "this letter is intended to make you aware that your vehicle could develop a condition where one or more of the instrument panel gauge needles may stick, flutter, or become inoperative. this may cause inaccurate readings, including the speedometer and the fuel gauge" the letter continues to state that "general motors is providing special coverage that extends the warranty" if "your 2003 chevrolet model year chevrolet tahoe within 7 years of the date" or "70,000 miles". my chevrolet tahoe has both these issues. they started about two weeks before i received the letter. what i don't understand and would like a response from general motors is why my safety is not an concern to them because i have driven more than 70,000 miles in my tahoe? i travel through a lot of rural areas to work and i feel it is very important to not run out of gas. i feel it equally important to know how fast i am going. the speedometer registers that i am going 60 or 70 miles per hour when i am sitting at a red light. when i am going down the road it registers that i am going over 120 miles per hour. this is another safety issue because i don't know how fast i am going. not to mention the potential for speeding tickets. i would like to think that general motors cares about their customers safety regardless of how many miles they have driven. these gauges are very expensive to have replaced and they are a safety hazard. not being able to monitor your rate of speed or be aware if you have enough gas to get home are safety issues to me for my health as well as my peace of mind and i would like to know why general motors doesn't feel responsible for correcting this default they are aware for all their tahoe owners. i have a complaint with the general motors answer call center but have not received a response. *tr

when doing 60 mph the speedometer needle reads over a 100 mph. you have to stop and start the engine several times to get it reset to 0 mph. i spent 2 weeks researching this and it is a very common problem with 2003 chevy tahoe. *tr
