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.

2007 Chevy Uplander cv axle splines not long enough to fit all the way into hub splines cause shuddering and hesitation from cv axle off balance wobble. Frequent clicking from changing gear to gear while vehicle still is a result of the cv axle spinning inside the hub (press brake and gas) the remedy for this problem of shuddering and stalling when at a go from a stop or clicking while transitioning to slowing down is to replace the cv axle with one that has a longer shaft with splines that actually extend through the hub so that the hub nut threads do not enter the hub bearing and the cv axle splines run all the way through the hub (instead of partially/less than halfway). The wobbling on take off is from the axle not gripping inside the hub, sort of like a dradle, as the hub does not completely grip the axle shaft the centripetal force goes off balance. As shown in the video link below you will see the long term effects of the errors concerning this issue. What would happen if one would place a rod through the center of a washer and whirled it around like a jump rope. Off balance at a high rate of speed it will rip through as shown below.

Uplander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 16,724 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Uplander. Due to the amount of snow in the area, the contact had to drive through a lot of snowbanks. He lost control of the steering wheel because the vehicle shook uncontrollably. While driving through the snow banks, the snow impacts the inside of the aluminum rims. The dealer stated that the low profile tires caused the vehicle to shake. The only remedy would be to install a plate in the tires to prevent snow from entering the rim. The failure also throws all four tires out of balance. The dot number and manufacturer of the rims were unknown. The failure mileage was 16,724. Updated 02-23-09 updated 02/26/09. Updated 02/26/09.
