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

problem #1

Jul 262013

Yukon 4WD 8-cyl

  • 80,343 miles


The spare tire is stored under vehicle and lowered from beneath the vehicle by a cranking a cable. It also has a secondary latch to keep it from falling on road if that cable should fail. The problem is that the latch is designed very poorly and quite susceptible to rusting from road salt. This prevents it from releasing the spare tire from the vehicle. The reason this is a safety issue is that the spare tire is impossible to use without prior knowledge on exactly how to release a frozen safety latch. It is very unlikely anyone would be able to do so while stranded roadside with a flat tire. It would at least greatly extend the amount of time person would be working on their vehicle along the road.
