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.

rubbing noise turning right. right wheel bearings went out just 8,000 miles after the left front wheel bearings went. GMC is a piece of junk, and they have no compassion for their customers who get lemons!!!! (Maybe cause thats all they sell)

Shouldn't have happened, never went off road, my car was treated like a baby. I think GMC has a really bad problem with their wheel bearings, they were no help at all when I called. When the other side went at 48,000 mile I was really mad---oh so sad they say. Now at 73,000 I need transmission repair, ball joint, bushing in drivers door, and heating system blown out. I figured if you had your vehicle serviced on a regular basis you were to avoid all these problems... CHevy and GMC SUCK
