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

In a camping situation we could only exit from the rear hatch and it could not be opened from the inside. Also, when attempting to unlock the mechanism would not unlock the hatch. This was a very unsafe scenario - locked in the car with no door exit. Finally, climbed from the window. Once home we realized how this was such a bad issue so we did research. Apparently since 2006 all Suburban, Yukon, and denalis have this recurring issue compounding the already unsafe design of not being able to open rear hatch from the interior. There are thousands of owners that have experienced this issue. It is a design flaw along with a poorly functioning locking mechanism. This will end up in a future fatality. It needs to be recalled immediately. There are homemade fixes on the internet that may also cause new issues. Here is a link of just one: www.chefseattle.com/blog/site-news/Suburban-rear-liftgate-wont-unlock-how-to-fix/ please deal with GM quickly and get this resolved.
