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.

2006 GMC Envoy Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 082011

Envoy 6-cyl

  • 28,000 miles


I was traveling North on the fl tpke. In my 2006 GMC Envoy on 11/8/11 just South of orlando at 9:30 pm when the car in front of me jammed on the breaks because the car in front of him was driving unsafely. When I jammed on my brakes the ABS did not function and the brakes locked up. I was swerving violently from side to side across the two lane highway until I finally got the vehicle under control with much physical effort. I thought I was a dead man but I survived. Thank god there were no other cars around me or there would have been a terrible accident at 70 mph which is the speed limit. Luckily I was able to avoid striking the other two vehicles in the road. There was tire smoke everywhere. This is a serious problem and now I am afraid to drive my vehicle at highway speeds. GMC needs to be notified and something needs to be done about this.
