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.

The current mileage on my 2010 Traverse is 74K... driving down the highway at 60mph all of a sudden the traction stabilizer control/ABS lights come on the dashboard and the car started decelerating, down to 45 mph and more. While the gas petal was being pressed no acceleration would happen. Went to pull off to the side of the road to get out of harms way, and all of a sudden the acceleration came back. The remainder of my drive the traction stablizer control/ABS stayed on with no other acceleration problems, until I arrived to work. When backing out of a parking space the vehicle would not go in reverse, while giving it gas in reverse the vehicle continued to go forward. Put in park, waiting, then tried it again. The traction stabilizer control/ABS lights went off and I was able to reverse just fine. Over the pas few months the vehicle has experienced only with the traction stabilizer/ABS light indicators no other problems. We had taken it to the dealership and they find no codes. Could it be the sensor or now could it be the throttle body??

Traverse 3-cyl

  • 37,395 miles
I purchased this vehicle as a GM certified used vehicle in late December 2010. Nov26'11 @ 37,395 miles the front brake pads were replaced and the front brake rotors were resurfaced. In May 2012, I was rear ended at stop light and a couple of days later, I started experiencing shaking when applying the brakes and was told it was a maintenance issue when taken in for repair. Jun15'12 the front brake rotors were replaced. Nov30'12 vehicle taken in for service once more with same complaint of shaking when applying brakes or when coasting - front disc brake pads were replaced and front brake rotors were resurfaced. It is now may'13 (52K mi) and I am experiencing the same issues once more, however the shaking is much worse to the point it feels as if the front wheels will come off while braking. I contacted dealer to get service history, and found that this issue was present before I purchased the car.
