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.

I have had consistent problems with the ABS on this vehicle. I have had it diagnosed at Chevrolet dealers and independent dealers in va. I have replaced all wheel hub/bearing assemblies. That is not the problem. The problem is with the ABS wheel sensor wiring harnesses. It is obvious if you go online and research this issue there is no way that Chevrolet is not aware and the many models of vehicles that are affected. I contacted Chevrolet and they have no desire to attempt to help with repairing this safety issue that is well known by dealers, mechanics and consumers. There are currently no tsb's or recalls for this issue. Thanks

The contact owns a 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. When the contact started the vehicle, he noticed a warning message indicating service traction system and ABS failure. The vehicle was taken to a local repair shop, but the cause of the failure could not be determined. The technician flashed the computer system to clear the code. The vehicle has not been repaired and the failure persists. The contact researched the failure and was able to determine that the wheel sensor on each wheel, ground, control system, or a faulty wiring harness could be causing the failure. The contact is in the process of taking the vehicle to the dealer and notifying the manufacturer. The failure mileage was 140,000 and current mileage was 153,000.

The consumer felt the overall design including the engine, transmission, and the brakes were seriously flawed. The vehicle was properly repaired by the dealer. On two occasions, the ignition had gotten stuck, the engine lost oil, and the dipstick cylinder had loosened. The consumer requested a refund. GM did not agree with the above comment, and stated the dealer handled the situation properly. (model ss) mr scc
