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.

The passenger side power sliding door does not close properly and opens on its own intermittently. Also, once the door is closed the "open door chime" does not stop. The chime continues to go off while driving, parked and when the car is turned off with the key out of the ignition. This is obviously a safety issue. I tried contacting the dealership where the vehicle was purchased and explained to them the safety hazard defect but was told that they will not fix the problem unless I paid for it. After doing further research, I have found that this is a very common problem for all GM mini vans especially the Uplander mini vans, with power sliding doors. However, since there hasn't been an official safety recall, dealerships will not fix the problem without payment. Again this is a safety problem and a recall should be issued.

: the contact stated while parked, the passenger sliding door opened on its' own. On 10/14/06, the sliding door opened while traveling 25 mph. No injuries were sustained. The sliding door functions correctly sometimes, but opens automatically on occasion. This had occurred 32 times. Two dealers were contacted, and could not duplicate the problem. The manufacturer was contacted, and suggested that the contact should notify the NHTSA.

The doors both voluntarily & involuntarily open/close. They may open while going down the road. They will also open when not prompted in the middle of the night, when everyone is asleep. They also will not close on some occasions. They start to close, then give a warning bell & re-open. We bought this vehicle because I have a 24 yr. Old son with cerebral palsy. I cannot, in good concience, put him in this vehicle..due to the major safety issues. Would you put your child in this vehicle & wonder whether the doors would decide to come open while going 75 down the interstate?
