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.

2002 Cadillac Escalade Owner Comments

Escalade 8-cyl

This complaint is related to the recent opening of investigation of low speed ABS activation in GM C/K models. I have a 2002 Cadillac Escalade with 117K miles. I had been experiencing wheel cylinder activation for a period of time. (one wheel) on two recent occasions, both while on a downgrade, rolling at approximately 3 mph, I experienced full blown 4 wheel ABS activation, nearly colliding with the vehicles in front of me. I went to the dealer and had to have hubs and rotors replaced. Not sure if they replaced or just cleaned the sensors. Issue should be a recall, cost me $1000+.
