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.

2008 GMC Yukon Owner Comments

Cracked dashboard in 2 places. Including a crack into the passenger side airbag. I'm very concerned due to having two 2 year olds in my car. The cracks began approximately 2 years ago. Our Yukon has regular maintenence and garage kept. I am very concerned this will cause my airbags to potentially engage!

We had arrived home from shopping that evening. My girlfriend was the last to exit the vehicle, because she was going to each side picking up trash within the vehicle. The dash wasn't cracked, two days later she entered the vehicle to run errands and notice the dash cracked she returned to the house and questioned everyone that had been in the vehicle that day and no one notice the crack.

Problems with power door locks. Had it with our 2000 Yukon, my 1999 Sierra, and now our 2008. The 12 volt motor which drives the locks up and down via a screwjack fails. No logical way to just change the motor. The entire assy. Must be replaced @ $153 my nearest dealer. 2nd door to fail on the 2008. Assy is stamped "made in china". this is a recurring problem and should be on a recall.
