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 vehicle was previously repaired according to NHTSA campaign number: 01V158000 (structure) in 2006. The manufacturer was notified. The approximate failure mileage was 232,000.

The contact owns a 2002 GMC Envoy. The contact was unable to access the rear driver and passenger doors because they failed to unlatch and latch propely. The failure was contributed to the closure latch assembly. The vehicle was previously repaired according to NHTSA campaign id number 05V494000 (latches/locks/linkages:doors:latch); however, the remedy did not correct the failure. The failure mileage was 135,000 and current mileage was 150,000.

I have had a intermittent rumbling sound in the drivers compartment like the doors are not closed properly. I have checked doors closed but yet it still happens. Took back to dealership and they could not find a problem. The fuel gauge is reading incorrectly, at a half a tank of fuel the gas hand will intermittently move up or down. Also Nov. 2006 a high pitch squeal from the front of vehicle while driving between 1 and 40 mph.

Envoy 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,000 miles
Transmission does not work properly. Have had it repaired twice, but still vibrates, and fails to move vehicle forward at times, from a dead stop. Is very dangerous at intersections where moving quickly is imperative. Also wiring problems which operate various remote instruments (mirrors, seats, etc.) fear of fire. Rear door latch was replaced - clicks "locked/unlocked" while driving. Seats move on their own while driving.
