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.

My car is starting to scare me. The other day I was driving in the rain and i was trying to come to a stop when my brakes started to grind and my car wouldnt stop. I was so scared that my brakes would not work in the city and that I would be in another accident. This happened to me several more times over the past few weeks, so I decided to take my car to the guy who usually fixes our vehicles. I told him what had been happening, and he checked out my brakes and said he couldnt see anything wrong with the brakes themselves. What he did tell me is that I would have to take it back to a dealership to have it checked out.He mentioned that it could be a problem with my ABS on my car and that the price of the repair could range anywhere from $160-$1450. Thanks GM for selling me a POS!
