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.

problem #3

  • 240,000 miles


Brake line failure occured in my driveway. All other lines seem likely to fail as well. This is extremely concerning for me as a consumer because many other cars like this drive around everyday. I feel fortunate I was going slow enough not to get hurt.

Front calipers do not fully engage and the "check stability control" warning occurs, making turning/braking rather challenging. It seems to occur random. It does need the steering wheel position sensor and not sure if the sensor is causing this issues as well. This has occurred several times, but not enough for a definitive pattern.

problem #1

LeSabre 6-cyl

  • 60,000 miles
When stopping on dry pavement the anti-lock brake sensor failed. After that the anti-lock breaks would not engage. Every time I applied my brakes the car would shimmy and was dangerous to control, I paid for the repair but it has happened four time since then making it dangerous to stop.
