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.

Traction control system activates for no apparent reason on dry pavement. Activation typically occurs after complete vehicle stop. Acceleration during slow speeds or after a stop is impacted.

I have been experiencing unintended ABS activation at low speeds (below 7 mph). This may result in a low speed collision causing property damage and bodily injury due to the vehicle not stopping in the manor in which it is designed.
