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.

I recently had my 2007 Chevrolet Uplander, in for service/repair to the right side PSD(power sliding door) on my van. The technician only cleaned the contacts and said that there was nothing wrong with it. The door still is not opening/closing correctly, the motor is still making a grinding sound & does not stop, the control switches do not work part of the time to open/shut door, the door "sticks"in open/close position, and occasionally the door will open while the vehicle is in motion. I have had this problem ever since I purchased this van in 2007. But, no one seems to find anything wrong with it or even cares to look any further than the door's contacts.this is a very serious concern, as I have a four year old daughter in a carseat next to this door! is there anyway of getting this problem fixed/solved? I have already contacted & reported this issue to General Motors/Chevrolet, and have not had any satisfactory help regarding this.
