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 Uplander Owner Comments

problem #2

Uplander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I have had to jump start my 2005 Chevrolet Uplander several times. The car has been taken to the dealership three times (today 2-21-2008 being the third). The battery was replaced once, the radio was replaced the second time. I have not received a diagnoses to the problem today, but the vehicle would not start even with a jump from a tow truck. The only item installed after market on this vehicle was a sit and lift seat, installed by the dealership at a cost of $5000. The seat has performed without failure, other than a few times it would not operate unless the side sliding door on the opposite side of the vehicle was opened or closed, depending on it status at the time of the failure.

Uplander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 49,043 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Uplander. The sliding door on the rear driver side would not stay latched. The contact called the dealer and manufacturer and they stated that she was responsible for having the door repaired. The vehicle has been in the shop six times now for the latch failure and the door opening on its own. Each time the vehicle was retrieved from the dealer, they stated that it was repaired when it was not. When the button was pressed to close the door, it would begin to shut and an alarm would sound; however, it would not shut and flew open while driving. The instrument panel does not indicate that the door is ajar. The rear passenger side door is beginning to experience the same failure. Neither the weather nor the speed were factors. The current mileage was 51,800 and failure mileage was 49,043. The dealer stated the vehicle would not start, check brake condition, and humming noise left front hub area. Updated 12/12/07
