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.

  • 118,000 miles
I have a 2007 Pontiac G6 and I am having issues with the brake lights malfunctioning. The brake lights will come on when I am not pressing down the brakes and when I do press on the brakes the brake lights go off. This just started to happen. I had it in a repair garage and they said they fixed it by putting in a new switch but it is still the same. My research says this has happened to others. I think GM should recall and fix before something happens. Who can help?
