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 #9

Yukon 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Crash with a vehicle who pulled out in front of us. We were going 60+ mph on a 65 mph marked highway. Our front passenger side hit the other vehicle's driver ('89 Lincoln towncar) quarter panel. Both vehicles were totalled by insurance. No airbags in my vehicle deployed. Fortunately, the structure of the vehicle held up to the crash and there were minimal injuries. The seatbelt caught the driver and there wasn't anyone in the front passenger seat or there might have been more injuries since the airbags didn't deploy. Vehicle was totalled and no replacement or repair was done.
