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 February 3, 2015, I noticed my brakes pedal were going closer to the floor. I got home and noticed that my brake lines at the rear was leaking brake fluid onto my driveway. I attempted to pull the vehicle up further in the driveway and the brake pedal went all the way to the floor. I had to push in the emergency brake. On February the 7th I contacted my GMC dealer in wendell, nc. I advised them that I was getting aaa to tow my vehicle in due to brake line problems. The dealer repaired my rear and front brake lines and charged me a total of $1,949 and said that their was not a recall on this part.

Steel brake line burst due to corrosion and rust. Brake pedal went all the way to floor. Made call to GM and had vehicle towed to my local authorized GM service center. I was told that this was not covered because the vehicle was almost 10 years old and that this was the life expectancy of the vehicle.

Brake lines rusted through and failed catastrophically and without warning causing a complete loss of braking while stopping for a red light. Since the entire system was rusted, there was no reserve braking from the dual system. I was traveling at a moderate speed and was able to recover without an accident. I replaced all the brake lines at a cost of $1100, not knowing that this was a common defect in GM vehicles. I saw today in the New York times that many other GM vehicle owners are experiencing the same problem. It is apparent that GM engineers have not heard about the concept of galvanic corrosion and used the wrong materials for critical components.
