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.

Stopped at a drive-thru window. Was in gear and under braking. Two lights came on at dash: Service ESC and service traction. Lights reset when vehicle is shut off and restarted. Lights happen at random times during operation. When service lights occur, brake lights react opposite of normal operation.
