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.

It appears there are four (4) recalls on this model/make/year - we have never received a single recall notification. NHTSA campaign # 14V252000, #14V224000, 14V153000, 12V460000. I would appreciated further information in correcting identified recalls.

Brake lights stay on without the brakes being engaged. When you engage the brakes the lights go off. The cruise control is effected by this also. We have put dielectric lube on the switch as instructed by a certified GM tech. This works for a week or less. My research shows that the 2005/2006 models had a recall issued for this same issue.
