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.

problem #3

The evaporator core on my and many other GMC is prone to failure. From my research it is not if this part is going to fail but when. The part itself it not very expensive but the way vehicle is designed causes this to be a $2000+ repair. Once the part fails the temperature in your vehicle soars so high that it makes the vehicle undrivable. You can no longer regulate the temperature and get the heat directly off the engine. The metal parts around any of the vents become hot to the touch. We have been forced to have our children sit in the back so that they don't touch the vents. Since this part fails so frequently they should recall it to replace it in all GMC trucks.

Current recall states: "the affected vehicles, equipped with the power liftgate option, have gas struts that hold the power liftgate up when open. These struts may prematurely wear and the open liftgate may suddenly fall." My vehicle is currently having this problem. The back lift gate will open and then with great force closes down quickly. This is an extreme safety concern as I was struck by it on Monday 10/26/2015 when the problem initially occurred. After speaking with GMC there is currently no resolve. This is a huge safety concern as I have two young children, and no resolution is not acceptable.

Air conditioning went out. It needs front evaporative core. GM is aware of this, it is almost a $2,000 repair and they just ignore it.
