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 wife was driving the vehicle home late when the service engine light came on traction control came on then service stabilitrak light came on and stayed. Made steering very difficult, like old time truck would have been. Luckily kept control or could have resulted into something very serious! bad part no early warnings, vehicle battery has never been jumped or used to jump (read something about blowing mega fuse ) vehicle 5 months past 5 yr. Warranty with only 64265 miles on it.I have read of this occurring to many others, hopefully no injuries.this seems to be a problem that needs to be resolved. I am taking it to the dealer tomorrow.
