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.

2006 Cadillac Dts surges while accelerator pedal is not depressed, RPM's get higher, shuts off without warning. ***** the vehicle has been taken to the dealer twice for testing. The manufacturer indicated that there was no fix for the problem. The technician at the dealer test drove the car and indicated that the vehicle was operating as designed. The vehicle would occasionally hesitate when slowing down to a stop.
