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.

Sonoma 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Third door latch broke. Contacted dealer and GMC customer service. Told no recalls on latch. I would have to pay dealer to determine what caused latch to break if part defective GMC would pay for fix but not for dealers labor for diagnosing problem. Dealer said it would take 30 minutes minimum to 1 hour and half at 75 dollars a hour. Talked to another dealer service manager, told "repair them all the time".took vehicle to local body shop who also said"repair them all the time".read on internet auto bulletin boards that other people having same problems.
