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 #2

Jimmy 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Was told by state farm this was a design defect. The oil lines leak from the engine down to the filter that is on the front bumper instead of on the engine.

Jimmy 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 59,000 miles
I purchased a used 2001 GMC Jimmy from performance (lemon dealer) Pontiac in syracuse N.Y.. the vehicle had 36,000 miles on it and 7 months later (purchased 6/03) the engine is shot. It had a leak through either a head gasket or head/block and antifreeze had been leaking into the engine oil. My vehicle now needs another engine or a complete rebuild!
