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 purchased my pickup new in Jan. 2007 and use it to tow an 8X16 trailer w/electric brakes for a part time business throughout the summer. The trailer weighs approx. 6000 lbs. Loaded and the truck is rated for 8,000 lbs. Approximate towing mileage is 3 to 4,000 miles per year. After towing the trailer 200 miles on Sept. 14, 2012 my wife noticed several oil leaks on the asphalt nearby. I suspected something in the differential area and drove to the nearest GMC dealership several miles away. They diagnosed it as a rear brake line and ended up replacing 6' of it along with both rotors and calipers and a brake system flush for a total of $958.76. I'm 66 yrs. Old and have never had a brake line go in any vehicle I've ever owned and I've lived in Massachusetts all my life. My local mechanic just told me this week that the rest of the brake lines are badly corroded and should be replaced asap. This will add another $900 to the entire cost. There is no question in my mind that GM has allowed quality in workmanship on its brake lines to fall through the cracks...and at the public's expense.
