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.

2004 GMC Envoy Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 152008

Envoy 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,450 miles


We complained about the transmission slipping at 33,000 miles and take it back to the dealer they say the checked the problem and replaced an electrical component, at 50K while my wife was driving on the highway at 65mph lost the power train. After much discussion and three weeks the dealer finally agreed to fix for 500 vice 3300 which they wanted. A week later the transmission is slipping again and now we lost power steering and the gas needle stopped working. I have left messages for the service manager at wiesner GMC in conroe tx and they have not returned any calls. I am now taking the vehicle to a different mechanic to tried to get it repaired.

Envoy 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 125 miles
The consumer complained about a power steering problems. There was a constant squeak in the steering even while the vehicle was parked. She said there was a popping noise while turning right or left. The consumer also heard the popping noise while going over speed bumps. The squeaking noise began as soon as the vehicle started. The service dealer replaced the power steering belt, power steering gear, a link and bushing, and the drive belt. Also, the dealer adjusted the power steering pulley. This did not remedy the problem, so they replaced the entire power steering pump. However, the problem recurred. The dealer thought it may have been something in the front suspension, so they replaced two stabilizer links. This still did not remedy the problem. Updated 11/29/05.
