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. Notes: While the 2005 GMC Canyon doesn't show any major complaint trends, it's mechanically-identical counterpart is the Chevy Colorado which has some engine problems.

The contact owns a 2005 GMC Canyon. While driving approximately 10 mph pressure was applied to the brake pedal and the pedal began to severely pulsate. It took an increased distance in order to stop the vehicle. An ABS fault light illuminated on the dashboard. The failure has since recurred intermittently. The vehicle was not taken to be examined for the cause of failure and was not repaired. The failure mileage was 24,994 and the current mileage was 25,010. Updated 11/22/10 updated 11/23/10
