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 #3

Jan 282007

Envoy 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 92,000 miles


Gas smell both in and out of vehicle. Within a couple of days gas would leak after car was driven. Fuel pump leaked due to rusted pipe on fuel pump to fuel line. It is the only exposed steel fitting and sits on top of the gas tank where water and moisture can collect, which is then conducive to rusting.

2002 GMC Envoy fuel smell. Took to 2 different GM dealers before problem was found. The 2nd GM dealer found it to be the fuel pump module which was rusted and leaking gas. GM would not stand behind this problem as she was the second owner. The problem is the way metal fuel pump module sits in the recessed portion middle of the plastic fuel tank invites moisture, rust, salt, corrosion etc. Replaced at our expense of $520 this is a design problem.

problem #1

Envoy 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles
Was driving at 65 mph on highway. Depressed accelerator and vehicle did not accelerate. Went to pull over and noticed there was no power steering or power brakes. Motor had stalled. The vehicle behind me nearly collided with me as I could not maintain speed and I had to swerve amongst traffic to get to break down lane. Tried to re-start in breakdown lane and incident repeated within 100 yds. Vehicle was towed to GMC dealer for service. Dealer had vehicle fail at least 3 times on roadway under same conditions over a period of 4 days. Dealer diagnosed failure of fuel pump module (pump, sensor, filter). Parts are being replaced today. After an internet search, I learned this is a "common issue" with this model vehicle. Should be a recall or preventive maintenance bulletin.
