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.

2004 Chevrolet Venture minivan. Intermittent problem with ABS & traction control. When car hits a sharp-hard bump (ie pothole) or when turning sharp to park, the alert that ABS and tc turns on. Have replaced rotors and sensors by dealer and authorized mechanic. Chevy dealer denies that having wires from wheel bearing module to computer tight as guitar strings may cause temporary disconnection or bad contacts. This has been going for several years, dealer only solution is to again replace rotors (over $1000) with no guarantee that it will fix intermittent abd and tc disabling.
