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 contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado. The contact stated that while backing out of the garage, the vehicle lunged backwards without warning. The contact continued to depress the brake pedal and the vehicle eventually responded. The vehicle was driven to the dealer, who diagnosed that the hydro booster failed and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 54,942.

I have a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 hd four wheel drive that is not stopping properly at low speeds. The ABS system is letting go at slow speeds causing the brakes to let go. This could be a very serious situation at a crosswalk with children. I reported the problem at the local dealer and they said it was a common occurrence due to rust affecting the ABS brake sensors. The cost of the sensors was $135 each plus about three hours labor total close to $600. I think this should be a recall issue as it is not caused by wear.
