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 Yukon Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 132013

Yukon 8-cyl

  • 103,000 miles


Driving vehicle at approx 45mph, came to stop at red light and brake pedal went completely to the floor. Pumped the brake pedal again and nothing. Down shifted transmission to slow down and pressed the emergency brake to come to a stop. Pulled over to the side of the road, lifted the hood no brake fluid in rear section of master cylinder. Noticed brake fluid dripping under the front of the drivers door on the ground. Had the vehicle towed home and looked under the vehicle and the brake line was dripping fluid. The brake lines are completely rusted and the frame is really rusted. Just got the vehicle out of the GMC shop for routine service. Can't figure why they didn't notice or at least tell me that I might have a problem.I called them and advise what issue I was having. They advised that GM would not cove the issue and $1300 would maybe cover the line replacement plus. I am not happy. Worked hard to buy this vehicle and now that I am retired from the military I really do not have the funds to replace the lines and do something about the rusty frame.

Intermittently drivers door will not latch properly because it will not align up to the stricker plate. Vehicle has been inspected by several dealers. Manufacturer not notified. Vehicle experienced excessive wind noise on the drivers side, in an attempt to fix this, the dealer caused the door to warp and also bend, this is why the door will not latch properly.
