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.

When depressing brake pedal to come to a stop, pedal is hard and will not go down. If I keep my foot on pedal eventually it stops but it requires longer stopping distance. While driving makes humming, moaning noise until ABS light comes on and problem stops. Braking becomes easier. Was told by mechanic that right front hub bearing is bad and needs to be replaced. Was told this may clear up ABS/braking situation. Fuel gauge does not work properly. Shows half tank when near empty. As fuel level goes down, gauge goes up.fuel pump went out and had to be replaced.

There is a fuel smell inside vehicle when filling up with gas. This only happens when consumer fills fuel tank full, not when fuel tank is filled half way.

Second set tires worn out at 39000 miles due to unidentified frt sus.problem.due to unusual amount of dealer verified concerns and past title history, even though most occured before factory w/added gmpp all attemts to have local GM dealers repair any of the problems acknowlaged, have been refused at presant time car sits in my driveway and we are using a rental paid for by me. The dealers, and factory have passified me through 3/36 coverage and made me think some conserns were not valid, because I was forced to drive vehc.all complaints have been duplicated and varified, documented by many GM techs. As well as passengers, private shops and the same dealer who questened job, marrage, and daily life have been affected and saftey was and is disregaurded by what I once considered the greatest auto manufacturer in the world, there are many problems that exist to date and were recorded before 3/36( dot number: Tire size: P235/70R15 )
