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

Yukon 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The accelerator stuck on our 2001 Yukon slt while descending hoosier pass (eastbound on hwy 9 West of alma, co). The brakes failed while trying to slow/stop vehicle. I downshifted to slow our vehicle to a speed and my wife and I exited (jumped out while vehicle was still moving) before going off embankment. My wife jumped first, then I did, just before the vehicle went off the side of the pass. Trees, rocks, and embankment stopped the vehicle approx 150ft down the side of the pass. 2001 Yukon slt, VIN [xxx]. insurance claim still in progress. Lease contact me for more information: [xxx] regards, [xxx]. updated 07/24/2012 information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6)
