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 Hybrid

  • 147,000 miles


Experienced intermittent illumination of the service engine soon lamp, illumination of diagnostic trouble codes including service brakes soon, reduced engine power, stabilitrak, battery and stalling of vehicle. Taken to the dealer for service repeatedly and dealer cannot diagnose. Also contacted GM to no avail. Searched online and discovered that a recall was issued by the NHTSA: Original recall from the NHTSA manufacturer's report date: May 18, 2009 NHTSA campaign id number: 09V154000 NHTSA action number: N/a component: Fuel system, gasoline potential number of units affected: 27,188 manufacturer should replace a new fuel system control module free of charge. However, the manufacturer has refused to diagnose and is not offering any further assistance. Even though I have taken the vehicle to the dealer repeatedly.

Escalade Hybrid 8-cyl

  • 29,500 miles
While traveling at highway speed of 70 mph, the engine power got reduced abruptly without any warning and the vehicle speed reduced to about 30 mph. This abrupt loss of engine power and reduction of speed from 70 mph to 30 mph caused near-crash conditions on a busy highway where all vehicles were traveling uniformly at 70 mph, narrowly avoiding multiple collisions. The check engine warning lights came on. After stopping the vehicle at a lay-by for a few minutes, everything returned back to normal. The check engine warning lights went off. Subsequently, this problem has been coming up intermittently without any warning and returning to normal by itself. This is a safety hazard which can cause serious accidents and injuries.
