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.

I purchased an used 2004 GMC Envoy XL in 2005 with warranty. About a year began experiencing problems took to dealer was told engine had to be replaced due to head bolt breaking. At this time I only paid my deductible as it was covered under the manf warranty. Now 3 years later, I began to experience problems. Engine light one took to mechanic (warranty has expired) was told engine needs to be replaced. Seems it's the same problem it had with prior engine.

My 2004 GMC Envoy xuv (V6) has an engine problem. It has stalled on 3 occassions. We told the dealer service department about the incident and they did a diagnostic test on it. They said the computer on the Envoy didn't have a record of the incident. On the 1st incident it happened when pulling out of a parking spot. The 2nd time was after reversing out of a driveway and then driving forward out of the driveway. The 3rd time was attempting to drive forward after waiting for the garage door to open.
