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.

2006 GMC Yukon Owner Comments

problem #3

Yukon 8-cyl

  • 85,000 miles


The rear liftgate will not unlock or open & rear liftgate window will not unlock or open. This is a significant safety hazard for persons traveling in vehicle, as there would not be any means to exit the rear of the vehicle via the rear liftgate or rear liftgate window in an emergency (especially for my children who sit in the 3rd row of seats) all 4 standard doors still lock/unlock both manually and with the remote clicker, however, the rear liftgate no longer unlocks or opens manually or with the remote clicker. This design defect of the rear liftgate and rear liftgate window on the GMC Yukon is a serious hazard to the safety of passengers. Now that the rear liftgate and rear liftgate window is "frozen" in the locked position, there would be no way to exit the interior of the vehicle from the rear liftgate or rear liftgate window since there are no manual door handles or levers to open the rearliftgate or its window from the interior or exterior of the vehicle. Per the mechanical diagnosis, the poor design of the rear liftgate 'housing box' surrounding the liftgate cable mechanism overheats and has caused the 'housing box' and cable mechanism to melt, thus rendering the rear liftgate and rear liftgate window non-operational. Without this functioning correctly, there is no means to electronically or manually unlock or open the rear liftgate or rear liftgate window, thus causing a significant safety hazard to passengers traveling in vehicle.

The contact owns a 2006 GMC Yukon denali. The contact stated that the vehicle blower motor failed. The blower motor caused the windshield not to be able to defrost and the heather to fail. In addition, the rear door lock failed and could not be opened or locked/unlocked manually or when using the electronic key remote. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 41,000 and the current mileage was 90,000.

I locked the car and heard the beep confirming that all doors are locked but found that the back door is still opened. Later I discovered that the center lock actuator is not operating at all.
