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.

Following truck..stepped on brakes and did not have any...swerved to miss truck and stepped on gas and did not have any...drifted into parking lot and up an incline and drifted to a stop. Has happened several times and nothing appeared on dash...and nothing can be found...someone will have to get killed before any thing is done about it.

2007 Cadillac Dts stopped in midtraffic. After a few minutes was able to restart, but it would only go 2 - 3 mph. Let it sit for awhile, then it restarted. Drove to dealer, found nothing wrong, however, they reset something in the computer system. They were not forthcoming with information! second time this has happened! I am fearful that this will happen on interstate 495 or another major highway!
