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.

Stepped on gas in my 2004 GMC Yukon and the speedometer needle soared way past the actual speed. When I stopped the car, the needle rested at 120 mph. After a day it reset itself and then did it again. I went to the dealer to get it corrected and they advised that they've been receiving issues with the instrument panel clusters. My extended warranty didn't cover the issue because it wasn't considered a covered part...but it is a safety hazard!

Speedometer jumps erratically - faulty speedometer head and instrument control panel. This is a very dangerous known condition seen on many GMC and Chevy vehicles. A recall is warranted.

While leaving for our christmas trip, I noticed that it seemed that traffic was traveling a lot faster than usual. When I pulled off the highway, much to my surprise, my speedometer was stuck at a minimum speed of 76 mph!! since then, the speedometer continues to get stuck at various speeds and I have no idea how fast or slow I am going at any given time. This is very dangerous!! my GMC Yukon is only 3 years old and has 61000 miles on it. I contacted the dealer and was told that it would cost anywhere from $600-800 est to fix the problem plus rental car for the days that the whole dash of my car was sent out to be reconditioned. The service tech mentioned that this was a common problem and sometimes it took more to rectify the situation. He also mentioned that other instruments could be failing on the dash. This is a very serious and dangerous repair problem and should be repaired at no cost to the consumer. I have found hundreds of posts on the internet on the issue and no ownership of the problem by GM. Something needs to be done!! I drive children in this vehicle everyday and their safety should not be compromised in this manner. For the amount of money I spent on this vehicle and the short length of time that I have had it, there should not be such a serious issue. Something needs to be done immediately!!

I purchased a 2004 GMC Yukon, in 2005. Over the last 6 months or so, my speedometer has been acting erratically - when it is hot or humid the speedometer starts to jump a little then starts to register a higher speed than I am moving. For example: I was sitting at a stop light and my speedometer read 90 mph. I noticed that when I would turn off the engine and repeatedly start up and shut off the engine, the speedometer reading would reduce by approximately 5 mph at a time, which means I had to start up and shut off the engine 18 or more times for it to return to 0. this happens quite often. I contacted my local GMC dealer repair department who knew exactly what was going on - evidently this is quite the common thing with these trucks and others - and told me that I would have to have the entire instrument panel replaced. Pricing around $375 for the part and another $100 or so for installation. I have investigated complaints on the internet for this problem, with GM vehicles, and there are far too numerous out there for this to be a single incident. It is obvious that this is a defect. In my opinion, GM should be responsible for the repair with a recall. I can see where it would definitely cause alarm as far as a safety concern. Fortunately I have not had an incident yet, but definitely feel that this should be looked into further. I just wanted to note that I also saw on an internet website for lawyers that they are gathering complaints together for a class action suit against GM. I thought it would be better to report this for investigation first.

: the contact stated while driving various speeds or idling, the speedometer reading was incorrect. The speedometer read zero intermittently while driving, or it read one hundred miles per hour while sitting still. The vehicle was driven to the dealer, who determined the electronics of the speedometer needed to be replaced. Updated 12/15/2006 -

I have a 2004 GMC Yukon. The speedometer is malfunctioning, it displays incorrect erratic speeds, maxing out at 40 mph no matter how fast I am driving. Recently on a local freeway I almost had a accident when the traffic slowed ahead and I thought I was going 30 mph but my actual speed was about 65. It nearly killed me. I have contacted GMC but have not had answer to this problem.

Speedometer on my 2004 GMC Yukon became very erratic, displaying speeds that were obviously way too slow or way to fast than what the vehicle was actually traveling. Very dangerous situation as I cannot tell how fast the vehicle is going. GM should conduct a recall as this is a safety hazard.
