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.

When brakes are applied they start to catch and a grinding, chattering is felt in the brakes until I let up off the pedal. The active handling code appears and then goes away. On several occasions the active handling code appears and will not go away until the vehicle is switched off anf then restarted.

While driving my 2004 Corvette the active handling message come on at the dash and while driving this causes the brakes to pull the car from one side or the other suddenly and this happens very often. I am afraid this could cause the car to have a serious accident.
