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.

My wife was driving down the highway and the truck just lost all power and cut off. She managed to make it to the side of the road and put it in park. It didn't start right away but I a couple of minutes it started back up and we made it home. It has subsequently done this several times now.

Yukon 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles
The head gasket leaked water, due to a faulty intake manifold. The vehicle also had problem with a wet floor, the consumer believed it was coming from the air conditioner. Dealer not notified yet. The intake manifold gasket leak under pressure which rusted and pitted the right cylinder head. The improperly torqued gaskets leaked at 10 psi required by the manual. The rear clogged up forcing condensation to build up and escaped into the rear compartment of the vehicle which soaked the padding.
