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 started the car, applied the brake, put it in drive and began to pull out of parking space. I applied the brakes and the pedal hit the carpet. I bumped the car in front of me. No damage. I towed the car to a garage and they found that the brake lines, 2 of them had rusted thru and there was damage to a third. The front calipers are also so rusted out that they cannot be adjusted to bleed the lines and the master cylinder is leaking. The entire system is rust effected. The car is a Massachusetts car I just transported to calif. GM should be responsible for these faulty vehicles and brake problems. To completely replace the brake lines will cost thousands. This is a major safety issue. If it had happened at highway speeds, it would have been very serious.

The contact owns a 2006 Cadillac Dts. While driving 75 mph a fuse which controls the ECM burned out and disabled the engine three times. The dealer reprogrammed the ECM; however, the failure continued to occur. The contact stated that this was a safety issue since there were no prior warnings when the vehicle shut off while driving. The current mileage was 70,000 and the failure mileage was 59,000.
