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.

Was about to go shopping for christmas gifts, stepped on brake at top of court and the peddle went to floor. Not just loss of hydros full on brake malfunction, no brakes at all. I live in New York and truck was purchased from Connecticut. Decided to make left turn and missed getting hit by 18 wheeler by inches. I am lucky to be alive to be typing this now, no thanks to GM. No warning lights nothing at all just no brakes. To add emergency brake did not work.
