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.

Braking system malfunctioned, causing extended stopping distance which may result in a crash. Also, brake rotors and pads were replaced twice.

problem #1

Monte Carlo

  • miles
Hard pedal with brake fade when stopping from highway speeds - due to warped rotors. Since dealer turned rotors, brakes make klunking, clicking grinding noise during low speed application, but squealing noise at highway speeds with no application. ABS activates prematurely over the slight bumps and won't return control to driver, but no error lamp. Service manager advised GM feels this is normal operation.
