Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Vehicle has numerous issues over the years. 80K miles currently, tires leak air because of corrosion on the rims, this is my 2nd set of tires not counting the set the vehicle came with, breaks have been done twice, rotors have been replaced, both front door handles have come off, problems with the leveler, now door locks lock/unlock while driving but not just once (might happen 6-8 times). Local dealer & service station have performed repairs/replacements. Already been under 2 recalls.

Suddenly the drivers side front door stopped unlocking. The door will not open because the locking mechanism continues to lock and unlocking quickly preventing you from opening the door. The door will not unlock manually, using inside lock button or by remote. This happens at anytime so you never know if you will be able to get out of the car. This is causing drivers to climb to the passenger side for exit preventing a quick exit in an emergency. Many many complaints have been filed for this safety issue and no recall on the mechanism that operates the doors leaving owners with a huge expense.

The passenger side rear door does not unlock from the inside or the outside. My daughter was in the back seat and told me she could not get out. I got out of the car and attempted to open the door from the outside with no success. I tried the electric lock button on the driver side and passenger side without success. This is a very dangerous situation and have read numerous complaints from many individuals. It appears GM has a faulty locking mechanism.

Rear passenger side door was opened and closed after entering, once we tried to open that door it no longer opened from the inside or the outside. The same thing happened to the rear driver's side door the next day, now neither of the rear doors open from the inside or the outside. The child safety locks were not on prior to this happening so it couldn't have had an effect on why this happened as we were able to exit the vehicle without having to open them from the inside and outside, now it won't open at all from either side. There are 3 children always sitting in the back and have to jump over the center console from the front and this is also a hazard in case of a fire or accident if trying to exit the car.
