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.

The module controlling the active handling system was poorly designed by General Motors and turns off the system while driving. General Motors no longer supports this module and it is impossible to get a replacement. When the system shuts off a dangerous situation is created, the dashboard warning light comes on and the digital readouts repeat "service engine soon" and "service active handling". this situation happens all the time while the car is in motion on both streets and highways. I hope that there is something that the NHTSA can do so that I do not have to drive a car that could be a safety hazard.
