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.

2003 GMC Yukon Owner Comments

problem #2

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


I have 2003 GMC Yukon with only 43K that I bought brand new in '03. The problem is its premature wear of the emergency brake. I was told by a GM mechanic that my parking brake is about to fail due to worn shoes. How is that so" I haven't even had the chance to replace my brake pads just yet. How is that possible that my parking brake shoes wear out way before my brake pads do, that I used every time I drive"

Recently discovered, after being warned by brake shop employee, that the emergency brake was inoperative. He said this was a common failure of these vehicles, (GM's - Yukon, Tahoe, Suburban, etc. Series). Returned vehicle to GM dealer who repaired it and acknowledged it was a common problem.
