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. Notes: The GMC Savana is mechanically identical to the Chevrolet Express.

2001 GMC Savana Owner Comments

There is a serious safety problem with my 2001 GMC savanna. The outside mirrors vibrate so badly that I have a problem during the day seeing the correct images. At night the problem is worse. I am constantly readjusted the mirrors to try to avoid "headlight flash". I have had GMC replace the mirrors. When I asked for a second replacement, they said that this was common and that I "would just have to live with it." I drive this van approximately 350 highway miles a week. Because my field of view is so poor due to this defect, I feel that my safety has been seriously compromised.
