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.

While traveling in parking lot, another car pulled out in front of me. As I tried to brake to avoid a collision, I noticed it was taking an inordinate amount of brake pressure to slow down vehicle. Looked at tachometer and RPM's were over 4000 in drive and not losing speed. Applied brake pressure with both feet attempting to slow vehicle down. Had to slam vehicle in neutral and tap on accelerator pedal numerous times to return engine to idle RPM's. took vehicle to Cadillac dealer who advised computer said nothing occurred. This safety defect occurred again in April 2014 with same results. The dealership installed a computer monitor on vehicle after second incident, which has since been removed. Cadillac has been sent two letters regarding this incident and has taken no action except to advise them if it happens again. I really am not looking forward to this serious malfunction occurring again as it may result in unfortunate results.
