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.

2006 Chevrolet Express Owner Comments

problem #1

May 012006

Express 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 500 miles


We purchased a Chevy express 15-passenger van in April 2006. Since that time, there have been about three failures of the front, side "barn door." A moderate amount of wind can catch the door and stretch it toward the front of the vehicle where it can and has collided with the front right passenger door edge causing a dent in the barn door. It appears that a strap or anchor within the barn door is stretched out of shape. A safety hazard occurs when a person walks between the front right passenger door and the front barn door. This is the point of impact. This began soon after the purchase of our van and has recurred at least twice. Our Chevy dealership repaired it once but refused to repair it again in July 2007. It remains un-repaired. Updated 10/11/07.
