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.

1. no braking when start Cadillac Srx 2008 after sitting for more than 3 hours. June 2009 2. took to dealer-they replaced pads and told me it was repaired. June 2009 3. next day, no brakes again, returned to dealer and they informed that a brake pump needed to be put on the vehicle due to manufacturing flaw. Had them order part, but did not come in prior to returning to home town. Refused to forward part to my dealer.June 2009 4. took car to my dealer and was told no such part existed. July 2009 5. took car back 3 times to my dealer and was finally told there was a part to order to fix the problem. Sept 2009 6. GM offered extended warranty for brake system and components. Accepted because thought problem taken care of. October 2009 7. June 2010 problem recurred. 8. July 2010 was told problem was taken care of. Went to pick up car. Test drove with technician and brakes still did not work properly even with new pump and other parts they had installed. Have been without car over a month and still not working. The problem is intermittent and only occurs on initial start after sitting for several hours. So far have run over curb at office nearly hitting an oncoming car, almost ran over my grandson when pulling out of garage and almost hit a car in parking lot due to non stopping of vehicle. The brakes are unreliable. There should be a recall on the vehicle. GM does not seem to be able to repair the problem after over a year.
