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.

ABS light comes on periodically. No defect with the braking system is evident. With some trips, it never comes on. Other times it comes on when I back out of the garage. From my web research, it appears this is a common problem.

This is an $800.00 repair for this vehicle that was covered under extended warranty thankfully. But since extended warranty is so expensive, you're still paying for this anyway. And it doesn't stop here, this car has more problems later when your warranty is over. So beware
