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.

For the past year 1/2 the service stabilitrak / service traction control lights have been coming on followed by hard shifts and now I'm scared to drive it for my own safety and others on the roads ! I've spent over $2000 on trying to fix this problem with no prevail !! very aggravated by this problem and nobody including the dealership can tell me why it's doing this ! I really need help on this problem cause I have 2 small children that I'm scared for them to ride in the truck ! help me and the millions of others I've seen with this very same problem and Chevrolet has issued no ! recalls on this !!? now the problem seems to be getting worse cause before the lights would come on randomly and stay on a few minutes and everything would go back to normal, but now they stay on all the time and the hard shifting from 1 and 2 follow always ! unreal !
