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.

I just bought this 1997 GMC Sierra a while back and on two different occasions this truck tried to accelerate when I applied the brakes. Good thing I managed to get the thing stopped. The truck is black, SLE PACKAGE, it is beautiful. It has a quarter of a million miles on it, almost 249156.6 Why did I buy a truck with so many miles on it? It runs so good and is very straight/beautiful. Has any one ever heard of this problem?
