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

Aug 222011

Yukon 8-cyl

  • 50,000 miles


We have a 2004 GMC Yukon. Since we've had it, reduced engine power has become a constant and dangerous problem. Most recently, yesterday, my husband was trying to accelerate to pass a slower vehicle with huge tires on the back only to have this happen. If someone had been behind us, we would have been hit, seriously injured, maybe even dead with some of the circumstances we have had on the interstate. Today is August 23, 2011. We had this vehicle fixed on July 28, 2011, paying almost $600 for it to be taken care of. It says on the ticket that we told them about it and were under the impression this would take care of it. They replaced the accelerator pedal assembly, which I believe included the app sensor, and cleaned the throttle body of excessive carbon build up. After spending $500-600, I want to know why we are still having this problem along with so many others I have seen complain about it online? GMC has a known problem that needs to be resolved.

One side of engine block is burning out all 4 spark plugs; need diagnostic information sent to our mechanic so he can fix this problem. No response. Engine light is on. Total mileage on 2004 Yukon ll purchased from dave smith auto, kellog Idaho in Nov of 2004 is 1,292. Yes, this is correct. One thousand two hundred and ninety two miles! I would think GMC or dave smith would be interested in fixing this problem especially with a new vehicle. Waiting for them to reply to warranty work. We are a remote site women's shelter. We need a vehicle that runs!
