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.

6 years after new purchase and approximately 70,000 miles, rust bubbles started appearing around the lower inside edges of all five doors. No actual rust was visible until dealer manager pealed a small area of bubbling paint off with a knife and exposed the rust underneath. GM would not take responsibility for the paint defect, had to pay out of pocket for dealer to sand and repaint. Rust protection warranty was not honored because no rust-through had occurred yet.

One week ago I purchased a 2003 Envoy sle 4WD, it has 200 miles on it currently and noticed upon delivery that a molding around the drivers side door is crooked. And 2 days ago I noticed a large puddle of fresh oil under my vehicle, and my oil light went on this morning. I haven't even had this vehicle for one week and I have to take it in for repairs. This does not make me feel overly comfortable about my purchase.
