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.

2015 Cadillac ATS Owner Comments

First in line while stopped at a left-turn light on a city street. Light turned green, began to accelerate. Mid-way through the turn, heard a "pop", lost steering control, and the rear end spun car into the curb. Keep in mind this is a 4-wheel-drive car. When the car came to a stop, the nose of the car was resting on the front passenger tire and wheel. The right-rear wheel was scratched and abraded all around because it was still spinning when it hit the curb. The front right wheel has damage only on half of it because it stopped spinning when the nose dropped onto it. Looking under the car I saw the front-right lower control arm broke in mid-turn. In addition to front right suspension damage, vehicle received damage to right rear suspension. No damage to body from the incident. GM had a representative inspect the car and pull the "black box" data on October 8, 2015. Maximum speed during the incident was 38mph. Were able to jack up the car. Front wheel hanging loose and easy to move by hand. Strut/shock/sprint tower attachment broken at wheel hub behind brake disk. Front 4-wheel-drive-axel broken. Anti-roll bar linkage broken.
