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

Aug 092004

Envoy 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,000 miles


I was driving on the highway at approximately 70 mph pulling a 3000 lb. Boat and trailer. I felt something change in the front end as though the alignment changed as I was driving. I exited the highway, and after applying the brakes a very loud pop came from the left front wheel well. Upon investigation I found that the upper ball joint had completely separtated from the upper control arm. This apparently occurred after the bolt that secures the ball joint in the upper control arm either sheared, fell out, or was never there before the incident. There was little to no damage, and the vehicle is currently at the dealer awaiting parts. More specifically, I was told that they are replacing the upper control arm and upper ball joint.
