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 own a 2006 Cadillac Dts with less than 30,000 miles. I just had to replace the brake lines due to corrosion at my expense. Although I did not experience any brake failure, as the vehicle sensors warned there was a problem, I feel that this is a result of inferior workmanship or materials and could result in serious injuries.

The contact owns a 2006 Cadillac Deville. The contact stated that while driving 60 mph and applying the brakes, the front end began to shake. The vehicle was towed to an authorized dealer where the brakes pads were replaced and the rotors were refinished. After the repair, the vehicle began to shake everytime the contact applied the brakes. The dealer replaced all the brake pads and resurfaced the rotors. The failure mileage was approximately 21,000.

2006 Cadillac Dts - brakes shudder when traveling down steep grades. Manufacture has tsb on this, with larger brake pads. But they are unwilling to cover this under their bumper to bumper warranty.

2006 Cadillac Dts has had several problems from day one. The day the consumer drove the vehicle off the lot, the tire pressure monitor light illuminated. The vehicle would not start after sitting in the carport overnight. Roadside assistance replaced the battery. 3 months later the vehicle failed to start again. The vehicle has been to the dealer seven times for braking problems. The consumer stated every time he applied the brakes, the entire vehicle vibrated/shimmied and when he released the brakes, the noise stopped.
