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 Yukon transmission seal failed because of rough shifting, serpentine drive belt squeaks. Vehicle leaked fuel consumer had to get a ride home while fire dept cleaned up spill. A seal failed and coolant leaked into the transmission and destroyed it. The radiator seal failed. The head light lens was loose.

2001 Yukon XL SUV with 81182 miles on it. Transmission made a popping sound (no forward gears, but reverse gears). SUV has upgraded transmission that had a supposedly better model "front planet" part per GMC transmission specialist. That supposedly superior "front planet" split into (2) parts inside the transmission although it is one molded piece. Resulting explosion of metal caused a $2703.52 transmission rebuild. I have the digital photos and the actual failed parts!

The vehicle was parked and not running, however the consmer was able to apply the shifter from park to drive as well as reverse. Please fill in additional information. The vehicle began to move in the off position when the key was not in the ignition due to the shifter moving from the park position.
