The location of the brake line has caused a hole to rub in the gas tank. ) while driving at high speeds the headlights go off and eventually they come back on after the switch cools off. (3)while driving the Tahoe a loud clunking comes from the middle or the rear of vehicle, which sounds as though the rear axle or driveshaft is loose and going to fall off. The dealer is aware of the problem. Dealer not able to correct the problems.
