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 8-cyl

  • 128,159 miles
Driving on highway when rear of vehicle felt like it was riding low. Got off highway at next exit to check back of truck. Rear of truck was sitting low. Turned truck off waited a few minutes, turned truck back on. The rear of the truck did not rise. This can not be safe for the rear suspension system to disengage while driving. I had previously noticed when the truck is first turned on that the rear suspension would engage and the rear of the vehicle would rise.

Envoy XL

  • 88,000 miles
The contact owns a 2003 GMC Envoy. After the contact placed fuel in his vehicle, he continued to smell an odor of gasoline. He crawled underneath the vehicle and noticed fuel leaking on the outside of the gas tank. The gas tank weld was rusted and cracked, causing fuel to leak out of the tank. The contact also stated that the front suspension of the vehicle was banging whenever he drove over the smallest bump. In addition, the fan clutch was making a clicking sound. The dealer informed him that the vehicle was out of warranty and the repairs were his responsibility. The current and failure mileages were 88,000.
