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 #3

Mar 062009

Yukon XL SLT 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 112,827 miles


Apparently, GM nor the NHTSA think losing your gauges is considered a safety hazard. I strongly disagree! Try driving without knowing how fast you are going or how much fuel you have to get you there particularly in heavy traffic or in inclement weather! GM has known about this problem for over a decade as it has occurred in nearly every full size pickup they have made since 1988.

The dealer will charge anywhere from $600-1500 to fix this and all they do is send it to a speedometer repair shop where new gauges are soldered back on the circuit board. A friend who worked at a GM dealership put us in touch with the shop they use in Richmond, VA which happens to be about an hour away from us. Taking the cluster out is a cinch, maybe 15 minutes. The repair at the shop only took a couple hours and I was able to pick it up and had it reinstalled in another 15 minutes. Total cost $136 and guaranteed for 1 year.

The dealerships would only warranty the repair for 30 days which was odd since they would have had the same 1 year warranty from the Speedo shop. I don't trust the big auto industry, they have become way to greedy and have total disregard for the safety of the people driving their automobiles.

Yukon Denali 6.0L

  • Automatic transmission

Kept losing oil pressure and the engine began to clatter. If we turned it off for a little while it would start up and run for awhile just fine.

Yukon 5.3L, V8

Have to use my judgment on how fast I am going, the battery gauge and other parts are not working as well.
