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.

Several times now I have received a reduced engine power message, as well as periodic service stability trak and service ABS. This seems to happen when I make a tight turn or hit a rough patch in the road. The most recent time this happened, I could not get rid of the reduced engine power and consequent reduced speed. I felt that it was dangerous to drive the van to the dealer so I had it towed. Now they cannot replicate the problem. I am scared to drive it until I am assured that it is fixed. I can see online that many GM cars seem to have this problem, yet when I called the GM customer support line, she was not able to find a bulletin or recall for this issue. This is dangerous - I am so worried that this will happen on the highway.
