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.

2003 GMC Envoy XL Owner Comments

While driving @ 35 mph I noticed a very loud rattle and heard a noise looking in my rearview mirror a saw the whole plastic top that fits over the hatch back and houses the third brake light, fly off into the air and land in the other lane of traffic. It ripped the brake light wire right out. Luckily no one was coming around the turn at the time. Had to stop traffic to get it out of the road. This is a busy side road that comes to a stop light.

I have a 2003 GMC Envoy, that is rusting badly. Recently this caused the transmission cooler to fail. Also the rear brake shoe backing plates, the spare tire carrier, the tail gate, along with other parts. GMC has recognized the fuel filler neck corrosion, but not the entire vehicle.
