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.

G6 6-cyl

  • 96,194 miles
The brake pedal vibrates when disengaging the car out of park into drive; sometimes it is difficult to get the shifter out of park. The brake lights are constantly on while the car is moving. Then when the brake pedal is pushed, the brake lights turn off. The cruise control does not work either; I believe because the car thinks the brake pedal is being pushed. Updated 8/22/13 also, the cruise control would not engage. However, the light was on the steering wheel.
