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.

2009 GMC Yukon Owner Comments

Dashboard above instrument cluster cracked without incident. Just noticed one day there was a large crack and not aware of how it could have happened since it was not in any accidents. Concerned that the sharp pieces could injure passengers in an accident. Also concerned the air bags could be affected.

Our 2009 GMC Yukon dashboard has cracks near the airbag mechanism that could lead to injuries related to shrapnel should my family be involved in an accident. Evidently GMC is not accepting responsibility for the replacement of the dashboard and instead making the customer responsible for replacement costs.

The door handles on both the driver and passenger side have become so sharp that when trying to open the door they cut your finger. Both my wife and I have had our fingers cut from slight to very bloody. This appears that it is an ongoing problem that GM refuses to deal with.
