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.

The contact owns a 2001 GMC Yukon. He stated that the rear lap belts would bind up near the shoulder panel. When this occurred the seat belts would not retract or extend which caused them to remain in a locked position. The manufacturer stated that a diagnostic test should be performed. The failure mileage was 75,000 and the current mileage was 87,000. Updated 01-16-08. The rear driver side and passenger side seat belts bind up in the upper shoulder guide causing the seat belts to be jammed. When jammed, the seat belts do no retract or extend to properly fit a passenger. The dealer stated the problem was a design flaw in the seat belt guide arrangement. Updated

Yukon 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The contact was slowing down to come to a stop and the ABS light and parking light came on. He increased his stopping distance in order to get the vehicle to come to a stop. Took the vehicle to the dealer; they hooked it up to a diagnostic machine. The dealer stated it needed a new electronic box. There was no free remedy to fix the box. The seat belt on the passenger's side in the second row of the vehicle locked in the buckle, other times it will come loose while in the seat belt. Also when turning the vehicle to the right or left one could hear a clicking sound. The dealer was not willing to fix it free of charge.
