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

Gas tank back spits when filling at station...goes all over ground rear access window pops open when driving passenger window mechanism broken and glass pieces formed in door. Mechanism failed to raise and lower the window...causing a grinding sound. Replacement was costly and unecessary for me the car owner. Should work for years without failure.

The consumer smelled gas, took the vehicle in and the fuel rail was replaced. Later gas was smelled again, there was a vapor emission leak. Then the check engine light came on and the fuel tank is being replaced twice.

There are various ongoing problems with the 2003 GMC Envoy slt XL. Fuel flows out of the tank when pumping. The dealer had told the consumer to pump slowly, they replaced the emission canister vent solenoids, replaced the tank neck/hose and replaced the left tank. Although these components have been replaced the problem still exist. The service manager came across a service bulletin that indicated there was a problem with the Envoy like the consumer experienced. He stated he would order the filler upper pipe assembly and lower hose assembly. If this repair does not alleviate the problem the consumer request a refund or a replacement vehicle.
