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.

Drivers side door handle chrome is peeling off and my wife sliced her finger on the interior door handle. This is a known issue as I had also cut my hand on my 2007 Avalanche. Another issue on my Yukon is that the dash has cracked for unknown reason around my airbag which could propose a serious issue since it surrounds the passenger airbag also similar to a 07 Avalanche I have owned. If you google there are hundreds of owners with the same issues and nothing had been done about it.

The interior, driver side door handle on my 2007 GMC Yukon is defective. The chrome laminate that covers the plastic handle is peeling on the top seam of the handle causing sharp edges to be exposed to my hand every time I open the door. I have contacted the dealership and they are saying that the "special coverage recall" is only good for 100,000 miles. I have 118,000 miles on my Yukon and the problem is just now surfacing. I have contacted GMC directly for a resolution, which has been escalated to the district specialist in the area. This poses a continual hazard to me, since I have already cut my hand once from the problem. The cut was minor, similar to a paper cut, but a cut nonetheless. I do not feel that the recall should be limited to vehicle owners with less than 100,000 miles that are experiencing this problem.

Last fall, 2010, I noticed that the interior chrome door handles were chipping. They chips were very sharp. I took it to the dealer they said that there was nothing they could except replace them at my expense. I was cut yesterday, 10/1/2011 on my handle. This is the NHTSA PE09044.

The interior chrome handles are peeling, I have cut my fingers while exiting the vehicle. I am a little concerned that this will happen to my young children and require a trip to the doctors.

Summary: 2007 GMC Yukon. Interior door handles. Chrome plating has separated from the top where handle is grabbed. Handles are razor sharp and care is needed when opening door otherwise injury can and has occurred. I kind of disregarded this, later we received a letter in the mail stating we should take it to a dealer for repair!! any how what I am extremely worried is with my new problem... in early February we arrrived from out of town, I was driving another car... I jumped in my Yukon ready to take my kids to baseball practice I had just driven about 5 miles when my truck read reducing engine time and it would not let me accelarate above 20 or 30 miles dont remember was tooo scared... I managed to pull over and turned the car off and on again after a few of those I managed the courage to drive slowly back home... I waited for my husband to come home asked him to take my car for a drive and magically it started just fine, after a few days, the same thing happen but now this time it shut off and while I was dropping my kids off at school right in front, where there are kids crossing and cars going!! could have cause a serious injury. Had a mechanic look at it, said he needed to clean sum things said there are many people having these problems his buddy worked at coachella valley Pontiac GMC and that dealers really dont know what the problems are... worked fine for bout a month and this morning the samething happened only this time it didnt turn off it : reduced speed and I was not able to pull over as there was no room to so I managed to get to a stop sign when I got there and stopped my car started shaking I was so scared, I had no idea what to do turned the car of on of on... nothing I managed to drive to a side of the road meanwhile my car is shaking like crazy... this needs to be fixed !! I think GMC needs to act now I M scared to drive my car, im even thinking of having it towed to GMC for repair!!

I own a 2007 GMC Yukon XL and the passenger and driver door chrome handle is peeling off and I got my finger cut as I tried to exit on the driver side door a couple of times. I just put tape around it but I think that it should be fixed it's a hazard and danger to have that happened.

I have a 2007 GMC Yukon and both inside door handles (front and passenger) have split at the upper seam of handle. This caused me to cut my hand on one occasion due to the driver side handle. I have since placed duct tape over both handles where the seams have split, so that nobody will get cut leaving the vehicle. Vehicle is out of warranty, so I have not taken it to a dealer.
