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.

My Cadillac '04 Cts has a brake issue. When turning sharp at low speeds the brakes "disengage" and I lose complete control of the car. It is intermittent and I can't duplicate it at will. It just happens. I have filed a case with GM customer service and am taking to the dealer tomorrow.

Brake failure in Cadillac Cts I have a large amount of information in a pdf that explains our experience as well as documents multiple similar experiences from other individuals. How do I send it to you? the brakes are intermittently completely failing at slow speeds and significant injury to a pedestrian seems inevitable. Please help!!!
