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.

Driving up on the hill the car jerked and shakes. Passenger feels it. It's displaying service brake system just under a year after it was done. It's now displaying, stabilitytrak and control traction. After stopping for a red light upon the departure the car shakes and jerks. When it rains real hard, I have a leak on the passenger door. I feel like the car falls apart light after light. Some people says its transmission.

Passenger air bag indicator has been intermittently going on and off for over a year, when a person weighing over 100 lbs is seated there. Recently the service air bag has come on the dic, and the air bag indicator is always off now when anyone is seated.

I continually have a message in my display to service airbags; I have taken the car in at least 3 different times and paid each time for the service department to determine what is causing the problem. They have been unable to find the problem and the message continues to display. I'm concerned because of all the ongoing problems with vehicle airbags. It isn't fair to have to pay for so many inspections with no results and especially for such a serious condition.

Seat belt sensor warning light comes on at start-up. Goes off and on when moving. The patterns are unpredictable. Sometimes it consistently turns on and off. Other times it may not display at all. I did discover a recall related to this model - recall id # 47176, effective Feb 21, 2007. The local dealer however reported my model is not covered.

I was in a auto accident in Feb/2012. I pulled out in front of someone and they hit me at the left front fender and drivers door. I was stopped and the other vehicle was traveling between 55-60 mph. No air bags went off in the vehicle. I feel that at least the side airbag should have went off.

I was coming home with my five children when getting close to home my truck just would not go over 10 mph I would pull over for cars behind me to pass after I tried turning it off and restarting but it would do the same glad I was close to home that I was able to get their. I got home shut the truck off and tried to turn back on and it wouldn't I have been told that it was a sensor and replaced it and it still didn't work know I have been told that it is the motor that is bad it is embarrassing to have a truck in your driveway that you have not been able to use and still owe have the amount of what it was sold to us. They also told me that this was common on 2007 because of the faulty motor that was put into them as I read some of the reviews it should be considered as a recall because of the price these trucks go for new or used suppose ably it is a high quality vehicle and its sad that their is so many bad reviews and nothing has been done to help all the people who are having this issue as GM knows this isn't something you can say I will get it fixed right away you are talking thousands of dollars for repairs.
