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.

The vehicle that we are experiencing trouble with is the ┐05 Uplander, specifically the tires, good year integrity P225/60R17. The tires are noisey, make a strange sound, wear out fast, ride is terrible, vibration in steering. We have taken the vehicle into burt Chevrolet multiple times only to be told that nothing was wrong. This was all done while the vehicle was under warranty. Now we are having the exact same problem out of warranty. We also recently took our vehicle to a 3rd party mechanic and it was determined the problem is with the tires. We believe the noise is attributed to radial wobble. Burt Chevrolet records will show that we have rotated the tires every 5,000 miles at your location and have maintained the tires as recommended. Records will also show that the then manager replaced defective tires at 15K miles with the same defective tire model and brand. As I am sure you are well aware that the Goodyear ┐integrity┐ tire is a piece of junk. Google this tire and see all of the complaints associated with this tire. Burt telling us that nothing was wrong was a complete failure of diagnosing the problem and not resolving the issue. Burt service managers not returning my calls is also very unappreciated. A service manager at burt in parker states that they put cheap tires on vehicles to keep the prices low. Should customers be expected to replace tires every 5K, or 10K miles?

Since purchasing this vehicle in January of 2006 we have been required to make extensive repairs on an on going basis. The vehicle has to be aligned & balanced almost monthly which has resulted in us replacing the tires on 3 different occasions. The brakes have been replaced twice and the rotors have been turned twice in the past year. The most recent incident occurred 3 wks ago when my wife was driving home on a 55 mph 2 lane road when suddenly the check engine & check oil light came on. The vehicle just stopped. Upon towing it to a local auto repair shop we were informed the timing belt broke which warped the cam shaft. GM would do nothing until we towed it again, this time to a GM dealership. The vehicle was found to have extensive problems from the engine, to the timing belt, camp shaft, pistons, plugs and much more.

: the contact stated while driving various speeds, the front suspension pulled to the left and right side without warning. The vehicle's front suspension was inspected by the dealer who determined a front alignment was needed. Afterwards, the problem persisted, and the vehicle was returned to the dealer, who determined all four tires were worn and needed to be replaced. The tires were Continental P225/60R17. Additionally, the dash instrument cluster panel lights and headlights flickered on and off while the vehicle was at an idle. The vehicle was inspected by the dealer, who determined the sensor for the exterior lights needed to be replaced. After replacement of the tires and lighting sensors, the problems persisted. The manufacturer was alerted.
