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.

Sometimes. After turning into an intersection, the ABS engage and slows the vehicle to 5 mph and there is oncoming traffic.

The car was on the freeway at 70mph when the anti skid light came on and the car suddenly decelerated to 15mph. Several attempts were made to correct the problem to no avail.

Service column lock was displayed on the drivers information center, which stoped the steering wheel from being turned. The front rotors warped at 7000 miles, I had them turned, but they warped again and will have to be returned to make them smooth ref. In EA02-031

I find it simply amazing that after 7K miles the brakes pulsated and the rotors were warped at 13K and now at 18K miles, mall Chevrolet (in cherry hill) is always where it is serviced, claims the brake pads are worn and that is what is causing the pulsating. I am not able to file a lemon law since the car just turned 18K miles. But I would have someone look into the rotors & brake pads placed on these vehicles.!

Started to experience a vibration in the front end upon application of brakes at approximately 5000 miles. This condition continued to occur. The front brake rotors were resurfaced at 8678 miles. This was a temporary solution. By 15000 miles the same condition returned, front end vibration causing the steering wheel to shake when applying the brakes. This was very noticable at freeway speeds. The dealer replaced the front rotors at 15613 miles. At around 20,000 miles this condition returned, front end vibration steering wheel shake when brakes applied. Once again the front rotors were resurfaced. They do not seem to grasp the fact that this is not correcting the problem. In addition to the front rotors there have been two occasions that upon hard (emergency) type braking the ABS system did not appear to function correct. On both occasions there was an excessive amount of brake release which nearly caused an collison.
