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.

2009 Cadillac Escalade Owner Comments

On General Motors cars that light the backup lights while parked and remote lock and unlock are activated. Pedestrians and drivers stop as if the vehicle may back up which should be a proper reaction. I have even taught my children this, people now have a tendency to ignore the backup lamps on vehicles in parking lots as well as creating inconvenient situations as cars and pedestrians stop for unoccupied vehicles. I have found myself driving past these vehicles when they are attempting to backup creating a close call. I know this seems trivial but I see potential problems and it seems to me a simple computer reflash could solve this disturbing trend. In the vehicle description I chose Cadillac Escalade though it seems to be most GM products.
