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

Brake system on the Yukon is a weak link on an otherwise great vehicle. We have complained about the brakes to the dealership numerous times and was told that it is normal. The problem with it is that the pedal goes almost to the floor everytime it is used and you tend to wonder if the truck will stop in time. I read in the paper this week that the Yukon's brakes on the 1999 and later trucks were recalled and would bet that the problem is the same. Either way I want a complaint listed about these lousy brakes on the 98 model Yukon and maybe GMC will design a fix for this lousy system.
