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.

Stability control. The stabilitrack warning appears. All of the gauges go to zero, the power locks engage and disengage, the engine revs and the driver loses control of the truck. This is an extremely dangerous problem. The dealership can't find anything wrong because no codes are showing. This needs to be a major recall. It's a common problem, google it and see how many people have the same issue with no resolution. Force GM to address and resolve this known issue.

I can not remember the three other times the elec. Stability control, has went out. This time my children were in the car. No issues of crash, but this is now becoming a problem, I have taken it back all times to be fixed at the dealer. All time they say its fixed. This time the engine started hesitating and choking out, mis firing.. im glad it was at low speeds.. this is a problem and needs to be fixed.
