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.

2005 GMC Yukon Owner Comments

The shift lever position indicator located in the instrument panel cluster does not illuminate. When the shift lever position indicator does not illuminate, the driver does not know which gear the vehicle is in.

Yukon 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,132 miles
: the contact stated the vehicle was unable to be placed into reverse gear. The vehicle was driven for awhile before it was taken to the dealership. While at the dealership, diagnostic tests were performed. The problem was with the reverse input piston seal. It was cut and not holding proper pressure. The seal was replaced however the vehicle was still having the problem after repairs were made. The vehicle was taken to 2 other dealerships where diagnostic tests were performed. The dealerships are unable to duplicate the problem.
