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.

This recall is exaclty what is wrong with my 2004 GMC Savanna Van. For some reason my VIN # does not fall into the range of VIn's that have this problem. Unfortunatly I am going to fix myself since GMC is stating that this problem is at risk for fire. I have already called GMC phone # (listed above) and got someone who simply told me what I already know (its not covered). It should be covered but I am not going to wait and put my family at risk. Customer service is a thing of the past, todays customer service is just a voice sitting behind a computer looking at the same thing I can look up myself on the internet. What a waste.
