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.

The ignition began to stick -- could not turn the key all of the way to the off position. Had to jiggle it several times before you could turn it so you could take the key out of the ignition. At the same time, you could not take the car out of the "park" position. The shifter would stick. None of these happened when the car was moving. Only when parked. Also, beginning Jan. 1, 2014, the rear tail lights went out in the car. Sears said there was something wrong with the wiring in the back.

On-going issues with my 2004 GMC Envoy since purchase. Leave home, travel to destination, usually a short distance, when trying to restart vehicle all dash lights come on, radio works, windows work, etc., turn the key to start and nothing happens, no attempt at starting what-so-ever. Makes no difference with temperature, time of day, rain/shine, etc. Often if you leave the vehicle to sit for an hour, it will restart, sometimes sooner, sometimes not at all. First incident happened when we had 308 km on the vehicle, now we have 68,000 km and problem still exists. They have changed the ignition switch numerous times, reprogrammed the settings for international vs domestic in regards to the apparent security system that I have, which we discovered has never worked either. Numerous issues with the ABS coming on with dry pavement. Water in rear backup lights, they were drained and re-sealed. Rust on all interior door panels, back door and hood where joints meet, repaired. Water on the floor at the door when it rains, fixed seal at door. Drivers side door locked when you left the vehicle without locking it myself, reprogrammed. Interior door trim/seal repeatedly falls off from back right passenger door. 10 months left on our lease....can't wait to find a new vehicle. Completely not satisfied with the vehicle or by the service we have received.
