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.

2009 Chevrolet Uplander Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 152009

Uplander 6-cyl

  • 5,000 miles


Both automatic sliding side doors would open with no warning traveling 55 mph, afraid my triplet grand children or my 2 dogs would fall out, the dogs did get out one day when the doors opened by their self, one of my dogs ran across the busy street. Automobile ran over top of him but lucky the vehicle straddled him and he excepted with out injury. I have questioned several other owners that owns the same van and they also was having the same problem, but could not get it solved and gave up. I had the vehicle back to our local Chevy dealer in ashland, ky 41101, the first time in it worked for about a week, then started doing the same thing again, second time in said they could not get the doors to malfunction, but they opened again by themselves 2 days later after getting it back from the dealer ship. I have had many other problems with this vehicle, all but 2 have been solved, but the most serious one with the doors coming open is still going on as of today July 12th, 2014.
