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.

2005 Chevrolet Uplander Owner Comments

  • 50,001 miles


While driving down the road at 40 mph in my Chevy 2005 Uplander van the passenger rear door opens and a continuous alarm sounds. (this door was next to my 22 month-old). Previously the door would open while in park. The door has been found open in parking lots in town and in our garage. Our door on several occasions has attempted to shut, but would not, then it alarms and opens back up. We have tried to manually shut the door but it would not shut either. The door also tries to shut with people in the way. My daughter went back to the van to get a toy and got her toy while I was blocking the door. The door pushed hard against me trying to close, it almost shut me in the door. The door would not reopen like it is supposed to with something being in the way. If that had been my daughter it would have shut her in the door, probably killing her. The van has been at a dealer atleast three times. Each time the problem was not fixed. The problem was blamed on dirt on the contact, so the contact was cleaned. The next time the computer was blamed. This last time a switch is being replaced. I am terrified to let my kids ride in this van because I fear for their safety. Please help.

My daughter was crushed by the automatic door in our Chevy Uplander. She was getting into the vehicle and the door suddenly closed on her. Luckily she only had serious bruising. It turns out that the automatic doors on the Uplander are not equipped with safety features, such as a sensor that would stop the door from closing if someone was still in the doorway. My daughter is 10, what would have happened if it were a younger child?
