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.

Escalade EXT 8-cyl

  • 124,371 miles


2003 Cadillac Escalade ext. Consumer writes in regards to brake system failure in vehicle. The consumer stated on two occasions, he experienced brake system failure which was related to oxidation and rust damage to the brake lines (metal tubing) and subsequent loss of brake fluid. The first time the incident occurred, the consumer was informed the brake lines were rotted and the lines as well as the hoses needed to be replaced. The second incident occurred over a year later, where 14 additional lines showed signs of rust. A patch job was performed to return braking capacity.
