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.

1998 GMC Envoy Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 072004

Envoy 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,000 miles


On Dec. 7, 2004, it was a very rainy day and of course my windshield wipers were not working properly. They would turn off, or they would turn on to full wiping when I had them set for intermittent wiping. They also would not turn off when I turned them off. This is a safety issue and should be corrected. This first happend in October of 2002. I brought it to the dealer and they didn't find anything wrong. The problem is that it only happens once in awhile, but when you bring it to the dealer, it doesn't happen! I notified General Motors about this on August 11, 2003. Confirmation number 1-128999107.

Envoy 4WD 6-cyl

Wiper malfunction with exact symptoms that the newer GMC SUV are having. Mechanics are using the same part on all vehicles and it occurs spiratically. Dealers are saying this controlling device is common to have this occur. The wiper motor sometimes just stop or change speed on it's own and it has be occuring from 96 to current and they only want to replace certain ones. I own a 98 GMC Envoy and this problem is happening. It doesn't happen all the time, but when it does it is dangerous to be driving in the vehicle especially traveling at higher speeds when it is raining.
