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.

2003 GMC Yukon Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 152003

Yukon LS 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


This problem was noticed by me because I did my own greasing, and when I had to grease steering fittings, the passenger side one was inaccessible unless I turned the wheels to one side. As I had my wife do that, I noticed that the fitting housing was digging into the manufactured design flawed routed transmission cooler lines. A few more times and they would have ruptured. It took me several times greasing to notice the problem, as I hadn't turned the wheels hard to one side or the other to find it originally. Guess I did not expect a problem there so I didn't check.

After I found the problem, I asked another owner if they had any problems and they told me they were thankful that they had purchased the extended warranty, because they lost their transmission. They told me I was toast because I had not purchased the extended warranty!

I showed the GM Service Manager at the local dealership the problem and they took care off it, replacing the transmission cooler lines free of charge. But had I not noticed?, I probably would have been looking at the repair bill for a new tranny? That definitely would have cost me some buckos!
