#1 - Gasoline Fuel System problem of the 2004 GMC Yukon
There was crash involved with this problem. My 18-year old daughter narrowly escaped death the evening of may 1st while driving my 2004 GMC Yukon denali. She was in a relatively "routine" accident in which she lost control of the vehicle at approximately 40 mph and struck a tree head-on in a residential area of colorado springs. A good samaritan pulled her from the vehicle seconds before the vehicle erupted into a massive fireball that completely gutted the vehicle. Needless to say, I am enormously troubled by the fireball -- not something that should happen in this type of accident. I am reminded of similar problems with the Ford pinto and Ford explorer and worry that there is a design flaw in this vehicle that may cost others their lives. I purchased and meticulously maintained this vehicle because I wanted something big, heavy and safe to protect my family, never anticipating this horrific scenario. Would you be willing to investigate this incident? I have most of my maintenance records, the police report, photographs, news accounts, youtube vide, etc. Usaa is my insurer. The vehicle is a total loss but I have asked usaa to hold the vehicle so that you or another appropriate agency can conduct an investigation. This gasoline fuel system issue occurred 05/01/2012.

#4 - Gasoline Fuel System problem of the 2007 GMC Yukon
The car is a 2007 GMC Yukon. Vehicle gets extremely low gas, 13 mpg on average. Burns oil . Need to add 2-3 quarts of oil between oil changes. Engine cooling fan stays on for extended periods while driving. All of which the dealership says is normal for the truck. They removed the driveshaft because of clunking at 25k mi. Reaction carrier replaced and transmission reconditioned at 36,663 mi after car stopped in the middle of the street. Car had to be towed in. At 62k miles engine light on and idles rough. Replaced throttle body. At 67k won't engage in reverse and makes klunking sound from reverse to drive. Replaced reverse housing, reaction shell, etc. At 75k had a reaction carrier failure, lost power brakes and lost power to the car. Almost was rear ended. Had to stop in middle of parking lot during christmas rush. Waited 5 min and restarted. Engine light stayed on, but was able to get to dealership. Was told that throttle body needs to be cleaned every 15k miles under service maintence. This was the first time I heard this! not really sure why it had to be cleaned, though, just had the throttle body replaced 13k miles ago. It seems that there are major flaws in the design of the engine. Obviously, the dealership has been putting band aids on my problem because they don't know how to fix. I have been very lucky that my family and children have not been in a major accident due to the major flaws in the engine designs. Every time I get my car fixed, the tech assures me that they have fixed the problem. I am really afraid to drive this car with so many close calls. The car is a hazard to drive!.
