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.

There have been a number of recalls for the 2001 GMC Jimmy, mainly recall #01073A & B stating ext. Lighting brake switch/ no rear brake lights. I'm told that the service was apparently completed on my vehicle in 2002, but another recall came out in 2008 stating the same problem. GM Canada is refusing to do the necessary recall on my truck stating that it was previously completed and that my vehicle is over a decade old, so it's my problem. I won't be purchasing another GMC in the future due to this issue. My rear brake lights stop working and its the switch that needs replacing. Thanks for nothing GM! you just lost a long term customer over a recall part. Dec 2001 - recall #01V364000 May 2008 - recall #01V364 / 01073B

I would like to file a complaint about the ABS brake sensor not working. From online search this is a common problem with the 2001 GMC Jimmy and no recall has been issued. I have had this issue for the past year that the ABS lights on the dash will come sometimes but at other times it will be off. I have been told the sensor is bad and it would cost over $700 to fix. Since this is a big issue I wish you would look into this and have GM issue a recall.
