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.

2002 GMC Envoy Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 072007

Envoy 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 41,225 miles

When having my 02' Envoy serviced and state inspection by my GMC dealer the service manager called and told me, I would need to R/R my front rotors. The pads were half worn but the rotors smooth surface did not exist. It looked like they were not machined thoroughly. Ser. Mgr thought I lived near the shore, stating salt water would usually causes this. I do not live near the shore and do not go the beach. I drive this vehicle to and from work all highway driving. My vehicle has 41225 mi and has always been serviced by GM. I have owned GM vehicles for 38 yrs and the cars with rotors never looked like this. This looks like a manufacturing imperfection. From reviewing the ODI list for this vehicle, others have also documented similar complaints. If I did not bring the vehicle in for the state inspection I would never have know this defect existed. This gave me neither warning in braking, stability nor squealing/ticking from early warning system. I should had asked for old rotors or taken a picture. Front rotors and pads replaced at my expense.
