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.

Active handling system malfunctions at highway speeds. When traveling on dry smooth highways, in a straight line, the active handling system will activate and randomly actuate individual brake calipers. When this occurs, the "driver information system" will flash "active handling". in every case, this causes momentary, unintended changes in direction and speed of the automobile. The event does not register any codes in the obd II. The problem can only be defeated by turning off the active handling system. The problem can be induced by making minute adjustments to the steering wheel while traveling in a straight line. This problem has been look at by the dealer several times, and they have been unable to diagnose or repair the problem. This is similar to complaint 757075.
