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.

2002 GMC Savana Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 192006

Savana 8-cyl

  • miles


We own several GMC Savana 3500 15 passenger vans. We seem to be having repeat issues with the exhaust manifold bolts braking and the manifolds cracking. Our 2002 has been in 2-3 times and our 2005 has is now in for it's second manifold and bolts. The bolts are breaking and the manifolds are cracking. Please encourage a recall for this type of vehicle. After checking the internet, we are not the only ones who are experiencing this problem with this GM motor. It looks as though this is a problem from all GMC vehicles with the vortec 6.0L motor.
