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 #2

Jun 232014

Express 8-cyl

  • 82,868 miles


Serviced vehicle due to *check engine light. Ran rough, skipped misfiring. According to the repair bill we received from emerson auto dealers. It appears that the fuel system had corrosion throughout the fuel system and a hole on the top of the fuel tank! all of the fuel lines and injectors and tank had to be replaced. This is a very high risk of fire hazard. Contacted our dealership and was informed that our VIN # had no recalls regarding issues, only some had met the criteria for that year"! this is outrageous. What can be do to help with the cost of these repairs" thank you

Express 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 125 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Express 3500. The vehicle has a wood floor that shrinks and allows carbon monoxide to penetrate into the passenger compartment. The contact becomes nauseous while driving. The dealer stated that the failure was the manufacturer's responsibility; however, the manufacturer stated that they were not responsible because another company designed the vehicle. The contact also stated that the tires were wearing faster than normal, the transmission hesitates, and the vehicle shakes. The vehicle was purchased new in 2005 and the dealer has not offered any assistance. The current mileage was 50,000 and failure mileage was 125.
