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

  • 48,000 miles


I have a 2008 Chevrolet Uplander ls minivan. When driving in wet weather when I have to drive through standing water, such as in an intersection, I loose all power. Especially the power steering. I also get a "charging system failure" alert on my dashboard. In a few moments the power will return. This happens every time I drive through any standing water. I have taken the vehicle into the Chevrolet dealer and have been told that they cannot find anything wrong, defective or out of place.

The door open warning system did not operate properly/ when the vehicle was starte with the door opened, the message remained illuminated even when the door was closed.
