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.

While driving my vehicles traction control is coming on for no reason. The dealership said it is a false reading causing the traction control to come on when it shouldn't. they said the sensors would need replaced and all the previous models have had this recalled but not out current year yet. The dealership said there are so many that have had this same problem but it has yet to be recalled on this current model. This is a death trap while driving but we don't have the $500 to fix it. This part should be recalled like the rest of the models. It is so scary and hard to control when it suddenly starts doing it!!! please help!!

My Tahoe will jerk backwards really hard. Then I get error messages stating the "stabilitak has malfunctioned" "traction control off" "service engine" and last but certainly not least "reducing engine power". I cannot go over 15 when this happens, which makes it really hard to get off the road when this is all happening. The whole vehicle bucks back and forth wildly as the cyclinders are shutting down. This is a terrifying experience since I have 2 small children in the car with me. Now my car is not safe to drive. If I do try to drive it it grinds and makes horrible noises and the service engine light is now permanently illuminated on my gauges. I cannot turn the vehicle with out it completely stopping. On its own. My foot will still be on the gas. Also it accelerates on its own. We live in nd and get tons of snow and ice. This thing is a death trap. I have purchased a vehicle that I cannot drive. But still must make payments on. It is a total lemon!
