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

Uplander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 11,000 miles


The car intermittently tries to start the crank keeps turning but does not start. As well as I was traveling on freeway with a big rig on the side of me and the car stalled and steering locked. Thank god I managed to glide over to the exit lane. I was terrified as was my passenger. When I looked at the gauges I noticed I was out of gas, but I had just put in $20. Chevy sent out tow truck to give me gas, but car still would not start. Finally hours later car was taken to Chevy. When Uplander was finished they said it was electrical short due to water in lines. Weather was great no rain or puddles anywhere. Uplander almost stalled on another night lights dimmed and tires stopped, but then it worked fine. Strange very!!! driver side sliding door opens or shuts when it wants. My daughter was in her car seat and I pushed button to close door she put her foot up towards door and it shut and locked. Luckily her tennis shoes were a little big so only minor bruising occurred. However my daughter is terrified of car. Also I have already put 6 new tires on car because they were bald at 13,000 miles first time. Tires in front are bald again. Uplander is not stable to drive on highway.
