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.

Filled fuel tank until pump clicked off. As soon as I started vehicle, fuel gauge dropped to below E and light, buzzer sounded alerting me low fuel. Check engine light came on. Preparing to leave on vacation so I drove to local mechanic who advised me of the problems with several GM SUVS. He thought as long as I set my trip (so as not to run out of gas), I would be fine on trip. One year later, I still haven't gotten it fixed(hoped I could wait GM out), the problem is a bit worse in that the gauge jumps around and fuel empty buzzer goes on and off all the time.. very annoying. GM says not a safety issue so no recall "??" why does it have to be a safety issue. Check out the internet, , there are hundreds of complaints, and we all know that there would be thousands if everyone would report the problems. Why not track how many replacement parts have been sold rather than complaints. That should tell you something. I guess why recall as long as they can make money.

The contact owns a 2006 GMC Envoy. The contact was stopped at a red light when the vehicle stalled without warning. The contact stated the vehicle stalled due to the lack of fuel in the vehicle however, he was unaware of the lack of fuel in the vehicle. The fuel level gauge was providing inaccurate fuel level readings and the contact was made aware of the failure through a diagnosis by the on-star system. The contact called the dealer and the dealer advised that there were no recalls regarding the fuel gauge failure. The failure mileage was 91,450.

The fuel gauge would go from empty to full, then back down to half a tank. It did that for a month or so even after we would fill it up. Now it just stays on empty with the fuel light and engine light on. I had the diagnostics ran on it and it was the fuel sensing unit. Now more recently it will just die and stall out while driving. Its done that twice now in the past 2 weeks, once with my 2 year old daughter in the car with my wife, luckily they were close to a safe area to coast into. I know that the tank had gas in it, we reset the trip everytime we fill up and that's all we do so we can have an accurate reading, we usually go around 360 miles before we fill up again. The first stall we have only gone around 230 miles. So gas was in the tank. We have not done anything to replace it yet for financial reasons, but as it keeps stalling we may need to do something soon, its an expensive repair. I've had it estimated at $750.

After filling up my gas tank the gas sensor light comes on and shows that I have no gas at all. Then the check engine light comes on and the gas level indicator moves back and forth giving inaccurate and random readings while driving the vehicle. I can't actually tell how much gas is in the tank. I wind up having to fill the tank everyday to know that there's a full tank.

When I filled up gas tank, the gas gauge was reading completely empty, the low fuel alarm was sounding and my engine light was on. The vehicle actually stalled in traffic because of this. Once I used approx 2 gallons of gas, the gauge would repeatedly go up and down. If it was stuck at empty, the vehicle was difficult to start. I researched this problem on the web and found that this is a very common problem and dangerous one. I feel there should be a recall on this

I have a 2006 GMC Envoy. Two months ago after filling up my gas tank the gauge indicated no fuel, and then it would fluctuate, from full to empty. Now it is a daily occurrence. The gas tank is full and reads empty, the engine light comes on, then it reads I have half a tank, then no gas and back up to full. I know other owners have problems and hope there will be a recall soon on this. I also have a problem with my outside temperature gauge in my rear view mirror, I do not get an accurate reading. When it's 70 degrees out, it reads -34 degrees. I have a problem with my blower, the highest level does not work.
