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.

tailgate either locks and won't unlock or doesn't lock at all. rear defroster works intermittently and the windshield wiper and washer fluid works sometimes too....has happened since I owned the vehicle for the past 9 years

Envoy XL

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles

The plastic panel across the top popped out of place. I cant open the back (glass or entire back hatch) at all! In effect, I am trunkless! This was not a result of any kind fault on my part. It was normal wear and tear. I have been told it is a design flaw- water seepes in and ruins the latches. It usually happens during the winter when water gets in and freezes. They see it all the time supposedly!!!!
