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

Jun 152011

Yukon 8-cyl

  • 75,000 miles


I heard a slight grinding noise, that sounded like a brake dragging. I replaced brakes all the way around, and that didn't stop the noise. I then replaced all the wheel bearings, this did not help either. I tried the U-joints with no luck. I was talking to the person that I got the vehicle from and was told that the rear end had been rebuilt twice! this was before I got the vehicle, and it only had 67000 on it when I got it. Since then I have talked to many Yukon owners, and they have had the same issues.

problem #1

  • 23,496 miles
The contact owns a 2001 GMC Yukon. While driving 15 mph, the 4-wheel drive service indicator intermittently illuminates on the instrument panel. All 4-wheel drive power was completely lost in the vehicle. She took the vehicle to the dealer and they stated that the case shift control module failed. The failure has occurred four times since 2004. The dealer replaced the case shift control module each time the failure occurred; however, the contact believes it should not fail every 12 months. She believes that a recall should be issued and the manufacturer should be responsible for the repair. The failure mileage was 23,946 and current mileage was 72,000.
