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.

Envoy XL 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles


I have a 2002 GMC Envoy that is apparently experiencing a fuel vapor leak. I took it ot the dealer (franklin GMC, tn) and he said it was a known problem; however, GMC has not initiated a recall process. He told me I could either wait for a possible recall or pay $900 to have the entire fuel tank replaced. I asked him if he felt any repsonsibility for notifying me of the known problem and not remedying the solution and he said it would have to be approved by GMC. Obviously GMC has taken the position that they would rather pay lawsuits instead of correcting the problem. Sad!

Envoy XL 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 87,400 miles
While filling my 2002 GMC Envoy, I observed gas pouring out of the top of the tank down over the rear axle and near the tailpipe. I noticed this because the gas pump did not shut off at the appropriate level. I called GMC and reported it. They were at first reluctant to give me the Agency I could report this too but after speaking to a supervisor they finally told me I could report the possible defect to the NHTSA.
