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.

2005 Chevrolet Express Owner Comments

problem #1

May 222013

Express 8-cyl

  • 25,000 miles


This could have happened before and just didn't pay that much attention to it but the first time we really noticed it we were : traveling slowly on gravel road, engine just quit. Had to put vehicle in park and crank it. Second time : had just stopped at a stop sign, started to pull out, engine just quit. Had to put vehicle in park and crank it again. Luckily there were no other vehicles behind us either time. Need to use this vehicle for a trip with our grandchildren and do not feel safe or comfortable in traffic as this could happen again and could cause an accident. We have not been informed if there is a recall on this but feel there must be some type of defect and that this is a safety hazard. We only have 29,500 miles on this vehicle ( express van ) and use it mostly for outings with the family. With all the recalls on the ignition switches, we just need to report this and need it fixed.
