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.

When you press on the gas pedal under normal conditions, the stabilitrack sensors kicks in for no reason and slow down the vehicle nearly causing an accident. I had this repaired once but after a few months continued to do it again. Seems like a safety issue to me. It happens moreoften in the cold

1. while driving on the interstate at approx. 55-65 mps, my 2004 Chevy Tahoe shut down almost causing an accident. This has happen to me several time until I found out the mileage, fuel and the hole system wasn't tell the correct reading. 2. also the air stops blowing on the passing side when the as is on. When the ac is off it still blows heat only on the passenger side. 3. when your driving the vehicle and stops at a red light then get back on the gas to pull off it acts like it don't want to pull until I get off the gas then get back on it like the transmission is slipping. So I had the strainer, filter and gasket change on the transmission and it still does it. 4. when I get ready to park the truck does put-put sound like it wants to shut off then it picks back up.
