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.

problem #3

Envoy XL 4.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 98,000 miles


It seems to me that on GMC vehicles the cluster for gauges is a common problem. Why were there no recalls?

problem #2

Oct 162008


  • Automatic transmission
  • 61,000 miles

One day the speedometer stopped working, then the RPM, then the oil gauge and so on. One day while on a long drive out of town, I ran out of gas. I hadn't realized that the gas gauge had stopped working because it said I still had 3/4 tank of gas! I was 300 miles from home, it was snowing and I was stopped on the side of the freeway.

I could not believe this! I finally got roadside assistance to come fill me up... an HOUR LATER. I called the dealership and they said to bring it in. He told me it would be $97 for a diagnostic then any parts and labor is $120 per hour.

I told him to shove it.

It's been about 8 months since then and I have learned to be my own gauge. I estimate when to get gas based on how many miles I've driven, I listen to the engine for the RPMs, & use a GPS system with speedometer that I bought online for $45.

Every once in a while I just get so so worked up that I bang on the shield to the gauge clusters just to see if that might help. It helps my frustration, but does nothing to actually solve the problem.

I got a letter on the cluster on my truck and it isn't bad but now my Envoy has the problem and there is not recall. No wonder people buy foreign cars!
