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.

  • Automatic transmission

My vehicle has two problems that I am aware of. There's heat coming from the floor heater while the heater is off, and it burns my feet. The other problem is that when I activate my left/right blinker my day lights go out, and sometimes when I'm driving my day lights are not activated. I have to play with my blinkers to make then come on. My car is still under warranty, but the dealership where I purchased this vehicle refuses to fix either problem. They told me that my car is designed this way.

Problems with my 2001 GMC Jimmy have been numerous including ignition switch, wheel bearings, clanking noise, roaring noise, windshield wiper failure, windshield wiper hose failure, battery, A/C, and so on. Currently, my vehicle clanks approximately 15 minutes after turning off the engine and my A/C does not work properly at all times. Dealership consistently says "there's nothing wrong" however I have had the vehicle for 2+ years and I know my car.
