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.

Enclave 6-cyl

I have noticed that my brake lights do not come on unless the key is in the ignition and toward the run position. I went to my dealer and was told that is how they are made now. I guess I am wondering why and also if this is true. The service writer did take my to another Enclave and it is just like mine--the brake light does not go on if the key in not in the run position.
