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 contact owns a 2002 GMC Envoy. The contact stated that she could smell gasoline in her vehicle; however, when the passenger inspected the vehicle there was no evidence of fuel. She took the vehicle to the dealership and was told that the fuel tank and sensor needed to be replaced as there was corrosion on the fuel tank assembly. There was a technical service bulletin (10026522) but her vehicle was outside the mileage range of 120,000 miles. The dealer would not repair her vehicle free of charge. She called the manufacturer and was told that they could not assist her. The vehicle has not been repaired. The current mileage was 128,214. The failure mileage was approximately 119,000.

When attempting to fill the fuel tank, gasoline will spill out the top of the tank (not the filler hose) and onto the ground. Rather than return up the hose and indicate to the pump that the tank is full, the gasoline goes everywhere. If you just add gas but do not fill the tank, this does not happen.

The electrical computer memory for the exterior mirrors and the seat adjuster failed. This caused the seats for driver and passenger side not to be adjusted. Also the mirrors are not able to be adjusted. Driver has to continously adjust the miirrors in order to see. Dealer reset memory seats, reprogrammed mirror memory, and replaced left and right front seat modules. Did not remedy problem. Customer states that there is a fuel leak loss of 1/2 tank in 3 miles. Dealer repaired loose connection between main fuel line and the fuel tank.
