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.

Started having problems with ABS brakes on August 1, 2004. The ABS light/traction control light stayed on. Contacted the dealer, and took vehicle to them about once or twice a month. They have replaced several vbpmv module, bctmb module, and wiring on the wheel sensors, also, they have cleaned wheels speed control. When the ABS light comes on there is extended stopping distance. The consumer has another appointment to take vehicle back to the dealer on September 26, 2005.

"service vehicle soon" light comes on after driving a few miles along with the "anti-lock" light and "trac off" light. Reading the Buick manual, this indicates some sort of braking system problem which would explain why once those lights came on, I had to press the brake almost to the floor. Dealer stated "I don't see a brake problem at this time. It's an ignition switch problem." What"??"
