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.

Both rear axle seals leaked and grease was coming out and getting on the end of the axles and on the rear rotor disc brakes. When braking heavy on hills smoke eminated, mostly on the left side. Mechanic was on vacation and consumer was waiting mechanic's return for repairs. Consumer did contact GM, who said they had no reports on this issue, but there was a recall on the rear brakes. Consumer had an appointment, and dealer stated they would look into axles when repairing the recall.
