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.

When turning corners on smooth asphalt the stabilitrac light comes on and engages the system which causes the vehicle to momentarily slow down and makes a "growl" sound, this also effects the steering. It may do this multiple times per turn or only once. It has occurred at varying speeds (turns at 45mph and turns at 10mph). Started out only occurring during left hand turns, now happens on almost all turns. I have noticed it is much worse on windy days. The stabilitrac also kicks in when I turn onto gravel and start to speed up (not mashing the gas and spinning tires, but simply speeding up at a regular pace that should not pose problems).
