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.

Normal street driving, metal on metal noise from front wheels. Apply brake, noise stops. Release brakes, noise begins again. Dealership states brake pads have about 8-10mm left on them. Three times at highway speeds (65-75 mph) service stabilitrak warning light comes on and traction control light, limited slip light comes on. No metal on metal noise when stabilitrak failing. Park overnight, car start in morning, stabilitrak is working again. Metal on metal noise is heard at all speeds from first start till shut down for night.

I have a manual V8 model. Whenever stopped on an incline, the hill start assist (hsa) engages. The first time I gave it plenty of throttle and the brakes would not disengage and caused me to stall. The 2nd time, I had the RPM very high and again the brakes would not disengage. My car was jumping up and down under the strain. When it finally released the car, I was greeted with the smell of burning clutch. This cannot be normal. I don't think hitting 2000 RPM and dropping the clutch should be a normal method to overcome teh hsa system. I have auto hill braking on other vehicles that are nearly invisible to me and work flawlessly. I been driving manual cars for 20+ years and have no issues on hill starts. One of the biggest issues is there is no way to turn off the hsa feature. I think you need to force GM to recalibrate the system and/or allow the driver to turn the hsa feature off.
