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.

The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer and the dealer stated that the esp control module needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was notified. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 58,000 and the current mileage was 58,010. Updated 01/24/12 the consumer stated when the electronic stability program light illuminated. For a brief moment, the steering was very light and the vehicle almost wanted to steer itself. Within in a few weeks, there was heavy wet snow and the roads were very slushy. Upon application of the brakes, the vehicle almost became uncontrollable. The consumer was informed it would cost $1500 to replace the module. Updated 01/26/12 updated 01/30/12
