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.

The contact owns a 2006 GMC savanna. The contact stated that the vehicle would sporadically fail to start and there was an increase in stopping distance when braking. In addition, the steering wheel would seize abnormally when attempting a turn in either direction. The contact took the vehicle to a local mechanic and was advised that a hose was leaking from the hydraulic assist from the power steering. The mechanic also advised that the failure would also cause an issue with braking. The contact spoke to the manufacturer and was advised that the vehicle was not included in NHTSA campaign id number: 05V455000 (steering: Hydraulic power assist: Hose, piping, and connections). The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and the current mileage was 110,000. Updated 05/31/12
