Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,000 miles
Upon returning from a 2000 mile trip my wife left her place of work and upon exiting the lot heard a loud thup she looked in the mirror and noticed that the entire spare tire assembly was lying in the roadway. A fellow employee ran over and collected the tire and the additional partsthat use to hold the tire up.we are taking the vehicle to the dealer. My warrenty just went off in September. I feel that this is defenitly a safety issue that we should not be charged for along with the fact that some one could have been seriously hurt or killed as a result of a fully inflated tire hitting the roadway I will let you know the results I also climbed under neath the Tahoe and noticed the the cable is very small in diameter I have a suspicion the cable is rusting out near the crimped end. This really needs to be looked into by general mtrs.
