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.

2006 Chevrolet Uplander Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 112006

Uplander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,264 miles


Purchased in Jan 06. By Sept 11, 2006 steering wheel became tight and heard noise under car when driving. Steering shaft was binding and had to be replaced; could not locate noise. Said may be related to steering shaft. Sept 20, 2006, took car back to dealership for noise under van again; was told E-brake cable was hitting rear suspension. February 11, 2007, had to replace front worn tires with only 23, 275 miles on car and have an alignment. March 9, 2007, traction control and ABS lights coming on as well as vehicle shaking. Was told front brakes were 100% worn and back brakes were 80% worn and would not be replaced under warranty because this was normal wear and tear.(only had 23,989 miles on van). April 19, 2007, heard noised while driving, heard something like a spring pop, service engine light was coming on, and it was stalling when trying to start. Both sway bars had to be replaced, spring pop was related to sway bars, and they could not find a problem related to the last two. Now a year later with only 39,000, I have to take my car in for new brakes again. And my front tires are worn and need to be replaced again!!!!! I also had problems with my doors not closing; after they wiped off the little magnets at the bottom sometimes they still don't want to close.
