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 Sierra 2500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 152008

Sierra 2500 SLE 6.0L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,000 miles


I have not owned this vehicle for less than a year and I want to get rid of this truck. I bought this vehicle from the original owner who has paperwork that says he had this problem at 30,000 plus miles. GMC does not want to recognize or deal with this problem. If I want them to look at it I have to pay for them to tear the motor down. I can't trade this truck or sell it. I want them to be responsible and take care of the problem.
