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.

Not sure if this is a transfer case problem, switch or what. There was a recall on the transfer case back when we first purchased the vehicle in 2002. Review indicate others have had the same problem. It is only on the 2002 - the first year the Envoy was produced. It made vehicle of the year. Cold but mild so far this winter - but no 4-wheel drive. Hard winter sure to come... need this to work. Could be a module? That's at least $500 or more. Any ideas? Any one else have this problem?

The 4 wheel drive has gone out 4 times. Use 4 wheel drive and the next time you start the SUV the 4 wheel drive lights won't come on and it won't activate the 4 wheel drive.
