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

problem #1

Jun 252003

Escalade 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30,014 miles


Rear brakes wore out with over 50% of front pads remaining. Ive owned over 30 cars and trucks in my life and this is a first. Dealer tells me itS normal. Since historically 99.99% of all vehicles perform 80% of braking with the front brakes it seems that there is something wrong with the brake balancing system on my car. Asked for Cadillac to put in writing that this is how these brakes were designed. They told me they donT do that. When I put my 3 year old & 2 year old little girls in this car I want to know that it is safe and Cadillac is willing to say so in writing. I donT believe the brake system is right.
