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.

2008 GMC Envoy Owner Comments

problem #4

Envoy 4WD 6-cyl

  • 100,000 miles


There are times when I don't know if my vehicle will start. I put the key in and sometimes it starts right up and other times, I have to keep turning and turning and wait until it will catch on. There were times where I had wait up to an hour for my car to start. I never know when because I don't have an indicator when the vehicle will decide to start. There have been times when it would work fine for one month with no incident, then it will not switch on. Seems like when I take it to the shop, that is when the car decides to act right. And the service stabilitrac light has been on since I purchased the vehicle only to find out that I need a rack and pinion. I really think the ignition switch should be recalled. I contacted the dealer and they informed me that my vehicle was not on the recall list. Updated 09/15/15

My service stabilitrak and air bag lights has been on since I purchased the vehicle. I have taken it to a mechanic and they stated that they did not see a problem. I was wondering if this is an on-going issue and if there are any recalls for this.

The contact owns a 2008 GMC Envoy. The contact stated that while changing the tires, the springs detached from the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where the springs were replaced, but the problem persisted. The manufacturer was not notified. The approximate failure mileage was 80,000.
