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.

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.

Faulty driver side seat belt that will not release to fasten. I have taken the car in and the repair person said that there was nothing wrong, and that it just was catching on something. Also, the passenger side door behind the drivers seat was very hard to open the repair person at the same dealership broke the handle trying to open the door. The repair shop did fix the handle for free, however the door remains still very hard to open and I would not use this particular door. After a while the door would not close and the door latch had to be replaced at my expense. The back window would not go all the way up and the actuator had to be replaced also. I am not sure what month the first incidence took place, but everything seemed to happen quickly afterwards.

I have a 2003 GMC Envoy. While driving, my daughter attempted to put down the window in the back seat but found it was "jammed" would not go up or down. I took it to the dealer who stated the regulator had to be replaced. In researching the NHTSA site, it appears that other consumers have had the same problems.
