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.

1998 GMC Yukon Owner Comments

problem #2

Aug 242005

Yukon 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 102,726 miles

While driving, the vehicle ride started to be choppy no longer smooth and when I applied the brakes the vehicle felt like it was bucking, then when we proceeded down the road we heard a loud bang of metal, then it felt like the brake pad had broken or caliper had fallen and it was grinding the noise lessened with a little pressure on brake pedal. Service station found center of rotor had separated on front passengers side and driver's side was ready to go. I called GMC and was told there have been no recalls on 1998 Yukon's for rotors and because I had 102731 miles it was not their problem. Both rotors were replaced with new pads, I told GMC that I kept the original rotors from service station. Updated 01/27/06.

While applying the brakes, the pedal went to the floor. The driver noticed the brakes lack of braking power in order to stop the distance. The consumer took the vehicle to the dealer for an inspection. The mechanic informed the consumer that the rotor needed to be replaced due to the rotors being warped. Please fill in additional information.
