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.

Driver seatbelt will not buckle properly. It takes about 4 attempts to secure the seatbelt.

The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Uplander. The contact stated when he inspected the vehicle he noticed the third row seat belt was not bolted onto the floor. The dealer stated there was nothing they could do to correct the failure. The manufacturer was contacted and denied assistance with the repair. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 71,000.

Power sliding doors open / close by themselves at times (usually right door, but sometimes left). Sometimes, when the door has been closed it will reopen & have to be closed manually. At times the door will stay closed, but the 'dinging' noise will continue for the entire time I am driving. There have been occasions when it continued dinging well after the ignition was turned off. We have had it in the shop and 'fixed' a few times. The fix sometimes lasted a week or two. Sometimes, it only lasted a couple of days. We were never able to pinpoint or predict when the malfunction would occur. Finally, we have removed the fuse permanently and only operate the doors manually to prevent a serious injury from occurring to the children. In the rear (3rd) seat, the right seat belt has also retracted & will not release. This happened one day when I was trying to remove a child from the vehicle. He was in a booster seat and strapped in by the seat belt. When I unlatched the belt, it retracted slightly, but would not pull back out. Now it is too tight to place a car seat, booster, or have someone sit there. I have not made the trip to the service department for this situation. No one is allowed to sit it that seat because the safety restraint is not-usable.

My 7 year old daughter was sitting in her booster seat with her seatbelt on, in the rear passenger seat of our 2005 Chevy Uplander. She leaned forward to pick something off the floor, and the seatbelt ripped out of the seat.
