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.

While driving 65 mph and pulling a trailer vehicle stalled. Prior to stalling there was some hesitation and jerking as if not getting fuel to engine. The dealer took vehicle to dealership in Arizona, and fuel pump had to be replaced. This was the second occurrence for fuel pump problem. Also, experienced steering problem. The steering would be sticking, and it would jam when making turns either left or right. The mechanic at dealership had to replace a seal in column shaft of steering wheel. The light clunk noise in the steering, low voltage, and insufficient fuel pressure on aceleration intermittently.

I have a 2003 GMC Yukon. It now has 20,000 miles. GM has had to replace the fuel pump twice so far and will have to every time I run low on gasoline. It seems that the pump is located in the gas tank and the pump depends on the tank having enough liquid to keep the electric pump cool. Otherwise it overheats and burns up. I can't believe such dumb engineering. I'm sure that I am not the only consumer who has had this trouble. The service people make no secret that you must keep at least a quarter tank at all times to keep the pump from burning up.
