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.

ABS system lights went on and ABS system exhibits crunching, grinding, noisy and abnormal pulsing operation. June 2012 message indicates rf hub needs replacement. Done. ABS system acts up again in under 30 days same symptoms. Rear brakes/drum replaced 6/2013, ABS problems still present. Front brakes replaced 8/2013, ABS problems still present. 8/2013 taken to GM dealer service for analysis. Speed sensor replaced, ABS problem still present. Dealer advises that lf hub needs replacing and ABS harnesses on both sides. 8/2014 lf hub replaced and error message now reads that rf hub is bad again. Taking back to GM dealer this week to try and find the definitive solution. Continued one by one repairs that do not fix the problem have been a constant stream. Note: Rr hub was also replaced in 2011.
