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.

problem #3

Yukon XL 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


This is a common problem that GM does not recognize. They would rather repair for $800- $1,000. Then explain it needs a new drive shaft and not go to the trouble of pressing new bearings into the old aluminum drive shaft.

Have the bearings replaced in the drive shaft and this should clear the problem up.

Yukon LST

  • 33,000 miles

I purchased this car new two months ago and every once in a while, we noticed a loud 'pop' sound coming from the undercarriage when we would go around a corner. 3000 miles later, the pop is at every turn and I have no idea what to do about it. I'm actually here looking to see if anyone else has experienced my problem and could give me some advice.
