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.

2005 GMC Envoy Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 022007


  • 26,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 GMC Envoy. While driving at an unknown speed, the interior and exterior head lamps failed simultaneously without warning. As a consequence, visibility is significantly reduced, which increases the risk of a crash. The vehicle was taken to the dealer numerous times, but they cannot determine the cause of the failure. He is in the process of notifying the manufacturer. The failure mileage was 26,000 and current mileage was 46,000.

I own a 2005 Envoy - 7 months after owning it - while driving in the dark all the sudden the headlights and dash/radio/mirror lights started flashing on and off. "like a cop car" to the point we pressed on star-afraid the car was going to stall on busy/dark freeway. When I called a dealer they said oh "that's normal" you had to much running and new cars can not handle "heater/radio etc. "its no big deal" > I called another dealer and they said no-this is a problem bring the car in. Ends up there was a bulletin for this and the chip had to be updated. Very wrong for the one dealer to say no big deal-when they know a update was out.
