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.

The electric door works occasionally or not depends on the day I guess. Sometimes it closes halfway then stops other times it won't budge at all.

I have a 2001 Chevy venture. The right automatic sliding door doesn't always open or shut all the way. Even if it looks closed the alert noise when put into gear will go off, It is very loud and annoying! Then sometimes when you try to open it it will stay closed. So you have to manual open it your self which is annoying and it strains the motor on the door. Chevy is junk! this is a small problem compared to the rest!

Update from Nov 22, 2010: The motor on the automatic door has been getting worse over the years but It just suddenly stopped working. Know it is really hard to open manually. Selling car very soon, so happy!!!!!

My one electric door does not open when you push the button nor will either doors lock or unlock when you push the button. The electric door is also hard to open when you open manully.
