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 #1

Aug 122004


  • 72,000 miles
The contact owns a 2004 GMC Envoy. The contact stated that the rear hatch opens by itself without warning. On June 3, 2008 the contact had the rear end gate controller, the lower end gate hatch accelerator and the left upper hatch accelerator repaired, and the failure had returned. The dealer stated that the parts had broken again. The contact feels this is a safety issue because items fall out of the vehicle on the highway when the hatch opens. The failure mileage 50 and the failure 72000.
