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.

Uplander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles
2006 Chevy Uplander purchased brand new 2 months ago. The headlights and interior lights are constantly flickering/dimming, with or without acceleration and while radio, and heater are off. Other drivers are blowing their horns at me and I believe this to be a serious safety issue. Vehicle is going into shop for service, however, technicians deny knowing of any such existing issues with these vehicles.
