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.

2003 GMC Savana Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 122007

Savana 1500 4.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 92,000 miles


Although this is on the GMC, The problem is on every damn vehicle that has a coil on each spark plug. If we got 30, 35 MPG, OK. But the College IDIOT that designed a coil on the Plug took a 3 dollar spark plug and a 12 dollar coil up to over twelve Hundred dollars if you had to replace all 8. And I still only get 11 MPG.

All these new vehicle are going to stand as a testimonial to over-engineering and not letting you repair you own car.

A continuing "disposable Society" mentality. (sorry for the Spelling)
