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.

Air bag indicator light came on in mid January 2008 and has remained on. The car just went out of warranty in Aug 2007. Since I have been deployed for 15 months, I was not able to discover this problem while it was still under standard warranty. After contacting Chevrolet about several issues with the brakes and air bag light, they instructed me to get it diagnosed. The diagnosis revealed an ecw failure but nothing could be found wrong with the brakes. Recommendation from Chevrolet servco is to have ecw fixed. After the occurrence with the brakes, my husband began driving the vehicle.

Contact states; the brakes squeal and when stopping the brakes don't work. When taking foot off the brakes the car jumps, feels like the brakes lock. The car jumps up nd down. Had vehicle in the shop at 4 different times for brakes problems. However, problem recurred.
