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 8-cyl

  • 29,529 miles


The engine has stalled with a warning on message center saying, "reduced engine power and oil pressure low. Turn off engine." The SUV will also go "dead" when trying to start the engine sometimes. After waiting a few seconds and turning the ignition key again, the SUV will crank. The vehicle has been taken to the dealership 7 times with consecutive "check engine" lights illuminating within hours after the repair. Diagnostic trouble codes have reported multiple sensors failing, including the knock sensor on bank 1 (three times). The problem has not been corrected, as the knock sensor has failed and the car would need to be returned for the 8th repair in less than three months.
