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.

Uplander 6-cyl

  • 17,700 miles


After only 6,500 miles all highway miles (no city driving) the brakes were grabbing. So I took it to the dealer to have them checked out and the dealer turned down all 4 rotors. I was mad, the service writer had the nerve to tell me that the reason the disks were warped was "while you were on the highway your brakes got so hot that when you pulled off on a ramp you hit the brakes and that's what warped your disks" I called GM an registered my complaint. Also when I talked to the service manager he told me that they have a lot of warped bakes on Uplanders, if the upland just sits for a month on the lot the brakes warp. Now I have 17,700 miles on my van and the brakes are warped again, but now they have to change the rotors and want me to pay for them. Looks like I will be paying for rotors and turning them down at 6 to 7000 miles and replacing them every 10,000 miles.
