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.

The contact owns a 2004 Cadillac Cts. When the contact turned the ignition switch, the traction control and brake warning indicators illuminated. The failure occurred numerous times. The dealer stated that brake fluid leaked into the computer, but the exact cause of the failure was unable to be diagnosed. The vehicle was repaired and the manufacturer was notified about the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 122,000. Updated 11/26/14 updated 10/5/2015

Brakes go to the floor when turning right. ABS/tc kicks on but car does not stop. Reported to dealer and they said they couldn't fix it because it doesn't happen all of the time. Almost had many accidents and recently avoided hitting pedestrian. Car is sitting until we find out what is wrong with it.
