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 #1

Sep 132006

(reported on)

Yukon /XL 8.1 Gas

  • 90,000 miles


The Oil consumption is quite excessive and irritating, with every 1-2 fill ups we just add 1 qrt., with a fill up in Oregon costing around $120.00 @ $3.18 �3.38 PG what�s another $3.85 in the grand scheme of total rip offs for Southern Oregon, while in Texas and other southern states fuel is $2.35-2.45 (At least you know the OLD oil is fresh when it gets changed). The real problem is the vehicle inadvertently quits or fails to start at various times, hot, cold, moving, idling, Turning, and after it dies or fails to start you wait 10 minutes and it starts back up and away we go, seldom is there a check engine light. We have changed timing chain position sensor, battery, crank position sensor, but not Vehicles Makes YET.
