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.

Sporadic brake failures on a 2004 Cadillac Cts. Car has had front left hub/speed sensor assembly replaced 4 times per authorized dealership recommendation starting at <20K miles. Brake failure occurring every few days, typically at low speed but now starting at higher speeds. Nearly ran over pedestrian in parking lot. Accidents have been avoided thus far. Car is with dealership; they say electronic brake control module is to blame. Called GM; they refuse to cover cost of repairs even though problem started when car was 19 months old with <20K miles. The consumer also stated the ABS activated at low speeds, the ABS and traction control lights illuminated. Updated IVOQ 09/29/10 the dealer replaced the wheel bearing assembly. Updated 10/29/10
