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.

Please see my numerous entries- took vehicle in again to service department. Picked up 11/17/05. ABS brakes. Supposedly they have finally diagnosed them.!replaced bad wheel sensor. H0161.9. I was told they didn't check them previously. I have documented the number of times this has been an issue and I have brought them in.. their records only show twice. Radio-replaced 8 times already duplicated freezing, playing 1 station and showing another at oth dealer and doc, they didn't replace this time however they installed updated software. "why wasn't this done before" and they advised a cd was stuff in the player. It was not, my dau was playing a janis joplin cd and took it with her when we left the vehicle. When turn signal used daytime running light goes out. They say this happens on some cars but not all. They cannot tell you which cars it happens to. Once when I brought it in, they fixed it. Then it started going out again. This time they showed me a piece of paper that said "some vehicles" has this but they do not designate which vehicles, I still do not know if it is a design flaw, electrical issue or both. Emissions, I've driven over 2500 miles and it finally passed the readiness test. I took this in 4 times before driving 1000, they on the fifth time I took it in it passed why did I have to drive so many miles in order for my vehicle to pass the emissions. My lemon tainted 2002 Sonoma truck GM rep sys his record sys I was never towed. As you know I was towed twice. Once when engine just stopped and second when my battery just died. General manager at dealer sys my complaint shows only twice. They still tell me I do not have any electrical issues. I say I do. Are my brakes fixed? I will need to drive it and will let you know!
