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.

The brakes worked, just not as well as they should. not to mention the annoying ABS and Trac off lights. I had this fixed along with my steering knuckle covered under extended warranty. The cost just for this issue was about $450. The controller alone was $300. Given all the issues I've had with this vehicle though it's been a great car and has not broken down on me yet and have had it for 4 years now. so far in total maintenance cost I have put out about $1000 dollars in non-regular maintenance costs which isn't bad in four years.

This is a serious pain, since I am not sure if this is real or not since the Onstar upgrade I have more warnings show up and my car goes in for regular service and maintenance . I drive alot but my car is well cared for. Now it is a few months from paid off and I get all these strange warning that don't seem right.
