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.

2004 Holden Crewman Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 012005

Crewman S 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,603 miles


Thought I would purchase a new vehicle from Holden, bad move, non-existent customer support. 1st diff replaced under warranty at 75,000 kilometers(40,000miles), 2nd diff failed at 150,000 kms(less than 100k miles). Holden workshop unable to do even basic maintenance like adjust handbrake . After 1st diff replaced, which took them 2weeks , rear brakes collapsed on rotors driving out of workshop. 3 rd diff has just failed ,took this to, allegedly,the best drivetrain specialists in Auckland NZ, Steelie Gears who charged me $2800NZ to repair and upgrade, 1 month out of warranty failed due to their inability to correctly fit front seal and rear gasket. So ,major fail Holden ,having been a lifetime fan of Holden vehicles(Australian GM for those of you in the US) now I have no alternative but to purchase Nissan or Toyota. One bouquet, the motor is bulletproof tho` that is probably because it is built by Buick.
