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.

I have a 2002 Grand Am GT, and the ABS light started coming on, took to two diff repair shops (one was a midas) and both told me the right front bearings and ABS sensor had to be replaced, and prob the left on in next cpl months. Also took the car to a GM dealer, estimate of $475 for right bearing and sensor, and prob the left one in next few months. All 3 places told me that its a common problem in the Grand Am, Alero and some Buick (same front end I guess)....
