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.

2001 GMC Jimmy Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 212001


  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


Vehicle has non-engaging transmission as at times it will not shift though it is an automatic and sometimes it starts out in 2nd and then drops down to 1st. Service engine soon light illuminated on 3 occasions as there were emissions problems. Front end makes constant popping noise. Problem has been lubed on 3 or more occasions as well as coil springs have been replaced and lubed. Brakes went completely out while trying to stop at an intersection. There was a rupture in the brake booster.
