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.

2012 GMC Savana Owner Comments

problem #2

The van is less than 3 years old but has well over 36,000 miles on it, so it is off warranty. The passanger seat is rarely used but the air bag light on the passanger side came on indicating air bag mal-function. The dealer wants $350 plus possible higher charge if difficulty arises in replacing the sensor. This is really a non-wear item.
