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.

On our Sierra GMC 01 the ABS brake light has been turning on for 2 months and have had no usage of our emergency brake, we figured it had to do with the emergency brakes so we replaced the emergency brakes and the rear brakes which we purchased the brake shoes for $74.94, brake pads $33.97, brake rotor$61.98, two pnt caliper blk $6.44 each and the total cost of purchasing this was $199.91 and to do the repairs we had a family mechanic fix what we believed could be the problem.
