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 #2

Oct 312005

Envoy 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


The contact stated the brake pad wear indicator did not make any noise before the brake pads went to the metal. The vehicle was not taken to the dealership for repairs. As a result, GM told him they could not assist, and advised him to take the vehicle to the local dealership for brake pads inspection. There have been no corrections to the vehicle at this time.

problem #1

Dec 202004

Envoy 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,000 miles
I noticed the brakes pulsing badly on my 2002 GMC Envoy at 27,000 miles. The dealership stated that brakes are covered up to 21,000 miles and rotors covered to 24,000. All 4 rotors and brake pads had to be replaced at my expense. I guess that I shouldn't have assumed that a warranty of 3 years or 36,000 miles meant that everything was covered. How convenient it is for the warranty coverage on brakes and rotors expires prior to the 3 year 36,000 mile warranty. That tells me that GM knows when the cheaper parts they are using are going to fail. The 3 year 36,000 warranty is very misleading. In my 27 years of driving, I've never seen rotor and brake pad failure at 27,000 miles. Good brake parts are vital in the safety of a vehicle, I don't understand how they are allowed to use inferior materials. Thank god my pregnant wife didn't have and accident while driving this vehicle.
