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.

The contact owns a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora. The contact was driving approximately 65 mph when the brakes were engaged followed by an abnormal pulsation, a warning chime and the illumination of the service stability system and anti-lock braking system warning lights. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for diagnosis. The failure was contributed to the hydraulic system. The technician informed the contact of a potential recall for the failure under NHTSA campaign id number: 00V114000 (service brakes, hydraulic:foundation components). The contact was informed by the manufacturer that the VIN was not included in the recall. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 175,000.

Sometimes when driving the car will attempt to accelerate on its own. If the car is placed in neutral the engine revs and when the car is put back into gear the car launches itself as though the throttle was pushed. This has happened on several occasions and there is no pattern to it. The brakes will stop the car but the stopping distance is much longer then without the engine racing. The steering column makes a clunking sound even after having the steering shaft replaced. This is very noticeable at low speeds or when it is damp out. At times the anti-lock brakes don't feel like they work. The car has new brakes but it didn't make a difference.

I keep getting a message to service my stability control system on my 2001 olds Aurora. Hoffman olds states there is no recall outstanding and the brake modulator unit will cost about 1000 to replace. It does not appear to affect my brake performance, but the warning keeps coming back daily. I believe the recall # is 00V114000. I do not have the VIN #, the car is at the dealer.

When consumer braked for the first time after starting the vehicle the brake pedal went straight to the floor, and the second time the brakes were applied it had more compression.
