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.

problem #1

S-10 Pickup 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


During rountine operation, after applying the brakes. The emer and ABS warning lights illuminated indicating a failure of the ABS brake system. After checking with my local dealership, I eas informed this is a common failure of the ABS control module and to repair the system it would cost appx $1,200. The very next day the lights went off and remained off for several weeks. Brakes operate normal, its impossible for the consumer to determine the exact extent of the failure and to what system. Also consider this to be a systemic problem with GM S series vehicles according to the local GM dealership.
