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.

I will be driving and lose all power! it does it at different speeds. Its like someone turns the car off and back on. The weird thing is it will do it alot one day and then it doesnt do it for a couple of days. It always comes back on but in traffic it could be very dangerous. I have had it put on computers and it never has showed anything. And I was reading on recalls on the ignitions and thought it could be a part oif the recall

  • 35,000 miles
The contact owns a 2008 Cadillac Escalade. While driving approximately 65 to 70 mph on normal road conditions; there was an unintended forceful acceleration. The vehicle failed to slow down and the driver manually shifted gears into the "neutral" position. There were no warning lights illuminated on the instrument panel; suddenly, the vehicle resumed to normal operation. There were three separate occasions that the identical failures occurred without warning. An authorized dealer was unable to replicate the failures. The contact was aware of the safety risk involved. The vehicle is not being driven at this time. The failure mileage was 35,000 and the current mileage was 57,000.
