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.

2005 GMC Savana Owner Comments

Side cargo rear door hinges siezed and bent after opening. Now it does not close properly (alignment from hinge), causing front side cargo door to stay open at all times. Rear door is over 1" out of position, preventing front door from closing and engaging latch. If rear door is opened, it does not close without excessive force to realign to latches, but still not enough to close front door.
