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 brake and trac light in a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix stayed on. We took the vehicle to a Pontiac dealer and he stated that it would cost $925 to replace the computer system. It also stated that he would call GM headquarters and see if we could get some help from them. Apparently he received word from headquarters that if we had a 50,000 mile check-up at his dealership and pay $425 then he GM wouldn't charge us to correct the ABS and trac light problem. Of course we opted for this because it saved us money. But I wonder if this was a scam and GM wouldn't have charged us anything to fix the ABS and trac light system.

During wet weather the brakes on a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix refused to engage. They made high pitched squealing noises and the wheels locked up. Control over the steering wheel was nonexistent.
