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.

2006 GMC Savana Owner Comments

  • 9,300 miles


GMC Savana 2006 with only 9,300 miles on it. Had dealer in fl check veh before we left on vac to NJ. On way to NJ we kept hearing things hitting under the carriage noises. Took to dealer here in NJ and they checked and saw that all the weights had come off the rims/tires. The tires are P275R45/20 with chrome rims on a custom handicapped van with lift. Dealer in NJ stated they replaced the weights that were missing and also told us we needed to have rotors cut down. Cost of $60 for weights and rotors under warranty. Not even 2 miles up road and the weights came off again. This time I called to dealer in fl. They told us to go to reputable tire co and have it checked because they would be able to make sure weights were placed on properly and secured not to fall off again on trip home to fl. We took to good year dealership and they had to replace 2 tires but the dealer explained that the tires were all rotting and slices were all over the sidewalls that should not have been there. He also told them that the tires were all from the same lot and cut and consecutive numbers also. He recommended to Corp that they agree to replace all 4 because he was not sure that we would not have trouble on the way home. We again were charged for the balance and weights and labor but not charged for the tires except for the trade of $50 each tire for the worn tread of 9,300 miles wear and tear. I felt that it was agreed that these tires in the lot numbers should be recalled to the public for safety reasons. We also had the nitro in the tires which could have exploded from the pressure of the tire problem. We could have been killed or seriously injured from this defect. The public has the right to know that this lot of Eagle tires : Eagle GT 2 : P275R45/20 are serious defects. Tires can be replaced but lives can not.
