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 4WD 6-cyl

While driving I turned on my left blinker to turn. The wiper came on and it sprayed windshield washer fluid. I put it back into the neutral position and they kept spraying and would not stop. I pulled over turned the vehicle off and back on. The wipers came back on immediately and continued to spray wind washer fluid. Then my speakers started to play a distorted sound. I turned off vehicle again about 4 more times and every time the wiper blades and spray came back on. I had to stay parked on the side of the road for about 10 minutes then they stopped. Or so I thought, as I started to drive and hit 20mph the wiper blades came on and it started spraying again till it finished the entire gallon of wind washer fluid. As I pulled into my drive way the wiper blades kept on cleaning with no liquid. I turned off the vehicle and the wiper blades continued for a few more seconds then stopped. This seems like an electrical problem and I am wondering what is my next step from here?

I own a 2006 GMC Envoy and my daughter had gone out to get something out of the back. She closed the hatch and was standing there talking to my brother-in-law and the next thing you know, the whole back exploded out! it was horrifying. It sounded like a bomb going off! my daughter was shattered with glass but fortunately was not injured.

Back window on my 2006 GMC Envoy exploded when the tailgate was closed. Glass was not previously damaged in any way. Hinges had just the day before begun making a noise when tailgate was opened and closed. My husband's hand was cut. Glass flew 20 ft. Out of garage where car was parked. Noise of explosion was like a lightening strike or gunshot.
