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.

The contact owns a 2006 Cadillac Escalade. While driving approximately 70 mph, the brakes made a metal to metal grinding noise. The vehicle was taken to the local dealer who diagnosed the vehicle and made unknown repairs. The failure recurred approximately one year later. The stabilizer light remained illuminated. The dealer was unable to diagnose the cause of the failure. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure, but did not offer a solution. The failure mileage was approximately 75,000.

A vehicle turned across the road in front of me. Stood on the brakes and felt the brakes grab hard. I initially thought I could miss the truck when first applied brakes, then they felt like they released. No pulsing like you would feel when anti-lock has engaged. Just felt like they released. Also, the airbags did not deploy. Vehicle is in the repair shop now and they told me the airbags are turned off. I've owned the vehicle since it was new and know of any reason why they would be off, nor did I know you could turn them off.
