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 #2

Nov 152008


  • 72,000 miles


The contact owns a 2001 GMC Jimmy. The contact noticed that the on-board diagnostic system warning indicator would consistently illuminate on the instrument panel. The vehicle frequently misfired, which caused it to be inoperable. The dealer stated that he needed to replace the scpi fuel injector and the mass air flow sensors at the cost of $1,150. He is in the process of having the vehicle repaired. He called the manufacturer in reference to a voluntary recall for the state of California for 1996 to 2001 SUV's, but was not provided any assistance because the recall was not applicable for his state. The current and failure mileages were 72,000.
