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.

I was involved in a car crash on 8-11-14. My husband brought my a 2014 Cadillac Ats for my birthday. A few months after ownership I noticed that when it rained the car would hydroplane but the stablitrack would make the vehicle jump back into it's lane. My husband thought I was being a brat, so I told him to drive the car. He took the car for a test drive and less than minutes into his test drive he said, "call the dealership and get these damn tires off this car now" ! I called the dealership (lafontaine) and left a message with xxxx xxxx and explained the problems with the tires and to switch to regular tires not the runflat tires. She never called me back. A few days later, my daughter and I crashed. The car hydroplaned and lost control we hit two tress and took down a one way sign. My daughter and I suffered horrible injuries. I made a claim with GM esis dept., they denied my claim stating that the tires were worn and speed. I had no more 5000 miles at the time of the crash. There is no way the tires were worn nor speed. I took my car in for the lease maintenance package the dealership (Suburban Cadillac) did tire rotation and at time there was no mentation of my tire thread wearing down. When I mentioned to service dept about the problems with the tires the explanation I was given is that the run flat tires are like the big wheel (child plastic tricycle from the 80's) tires when it rains that's why plus tire are low profile. I contacted my state attorney general (no help), BBB (going through procedures currently), ftc (made a complaint), and contacted nthsa(no help at all) to get help for an investigation and for GM. As a citizen of the United States I am so disappointed with the lack of support for the people that are supposed to assist citizens like me.

I have researched and found other owner that have experienced the same exact problems, but I am the only person that almost died. GM is giant company and I have no voice for the companies/organizations that are supposed to assist me. GM they claimed that my tires were worn when I purchased my car it had only 2886 miles and when I crashed I had a little over 7,000 miles, that is impossible for my tires to have been worn! GM is obliviously trying to cover the issue

I turned a corner, drove through some sand on the road and broke traction. After that, the traction control system lights came on and within several seconds the check engine light came on. I had onstar service run remote diagnostics and they found ABS failing and a cylinder misfire. The car took an immediate loss in power and started to shake at all power levels.
