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.

During rain and when snow reaches the wheel, the check ABS light will come on along with another idiot light. It affects the traction control and the traction control won't fully function nor will ABS.

I've read somewhere that there is a poor design to the brake area where a sensor is susceptible to moisture.

Well, I was told by the mechanic the the front, driver's side ABS speed control sensor was failing and should be replaced. I have not replaced it yet, it costs about $200 to have it installed by a mechanic, but should probably do it myself.
