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.

2004 GMC Yukon Owner Comments

problem #2

Yukon SLT 5.3L

How can an suv that's 11 yrs old have rusted out brake lines? I was ready to pull a camper last week-end, when the pedal went to the floor while I was at Wal-Mart. Looked underneath and brake fluid was running off the frame to the ground. My opinion is the brakes are the most important thing in the suv. Luckily it is raining every day so we canceled taking the camper out last week. The brake line is a defect in GMC builders. Now I'm waiting for 2 weeks without a car because of rusted out brake lines???

Its time to buy Japanese cars, they last longer.

Apparently this is a common problem with GMC trucks. All new brake line parts cost $300-500 & full replacement total cost can be around $2000. Dangerous and expensive - GMC should be forced to fix this problem.
