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.

my abs light always comes on when i turn on my 4way hazards, dont know why, maybe just a wiring problem? it only comes on when i turn on my hazards, other than that the car is pretty good, had it for a year and only replaced the alternator

Sunfire GT 2.4L

occasionally when i am just driving along the ABS light will come on and that worries me. I read in the manual that you can turn off the engine to reset it and that usually works...but that was the first time. i have had to do it a few more and it is really getting a bit annoying, and i am worried that my brakes aren't going to work right
