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 automatic sliding door on the mini van will open it but did not have sensor to retract. It almost shut son in the door. This happened on July 23, 2005. Has been back and forth to the dealer. The GM representative looked at vehicle and told consumer it was different. The older models take more weight to open back up. It does not have sensor like the newer models do.
