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.

4 week old 2016 Yukon denali XL, has stalled 3 times in last 4 weeks, engine cuts off after a left or right turn, and it has to be restarted! could have easily had an accident or worse. Took it to the dealer, 3 times. 1st two times, all of service dept. Could not diagnose the problem. Today, after a stall, called onstar, ran a diagnostics, found nothing of value, I left it at dealership and contacted district mgr. Matt tillson. I was told that they would escalate the issue. I did tell dealer that GMC and dealership would be at fault if vehicle is in an accident and dies while I am driving. I did not want the vehicle back without the problem having been fixed.
