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.

When I'm stop and I press on the accelerator the van jumps or it starts shaking I took it to the dealer I was told it was the trasmission. They did a full service oil change and everything on the transmission. And it continues to do the same thing when I press on the gas pedal it doesn't get the next shift and it jumps my passengers get scare it fells like someone hit us from behind. Nothing pops up on the dash board no check engine or anything it's the transmission and I don't want to put money in it. It does it everyday I don't want to drive it I'm scared it won't go when I try to accelerate or it won't get the next gear and I'm going to drive 10 mph

My traction control light has been staying on sometimes the van accelerates on its own and service stability light comes on. Too the brakes have a grinding catch in brake pedal when pushing it when going down my driveway. Also the van has hesitation on starting you have to give it gas to start. These problems happen while youre driving. I just had a new transmission put in, but these problems started before my transmission went out.

My car will only start on the first start of the day other than that you have to keep trying to start it. I usually have to lightly tap on the gas pedal to get it to start. At least 2-3 times a day it will keep turning over and die. I'm afraid that it will cause a fire or something because of that. I've taken it to a dealer at the 14-69 auto mall in fort wayne Indiana and he told me that an excessive start in GM vehicles is very normal. I know quite a few people that have this same van as I do and every single one of them has the same exact problem. Bit it seems that no one knows what is causing it. I am afraid it may be an ignition or something similar to it. That K you for your time.
