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.

problem #3

Nov 112005

Yukon 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 53,000 miles
Transmission fails to engage drive unless placed into reverse. When stuck in drive, pushing on the accelerating will cause car to move forward slowly, until their is a loud violent sound from the rear of the vehicle ar which point the vehicle will engage drive and proceed in a sluggish fashion. The vehicle has been at the dealer who had investigated and fixed the problem since November 2005 and the problem persists today (2-7-2006). The problem presented itself after the dealership flushed and changed the transmission fluid at approximately 53000 miles (the service dept recommended the service). The transmission has been faulty ever since. The vehicle is 2002 GMC Yukon, 2 wd.
