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.

This was the 2nd time this problem occurred. This time I was coming back from a drive on the hwy and my wheel started to shake. It was a drastic change of a smooth ride to a weird shaking. I exited the hwy and went the street way. Still it did not improve got worst could barely accelerate. The brakes were so sensitive I barely pushed them down and it stopped. By the time I got home the and parked the car in the garage it stated to run hot. So I wanted to remove it out the garage it was very hard to reverse I got it half way out of the garage and grabbed my son we ran because it was smelling hot and running hot.

2007 XL7 has the service traction control, service stability control, and engine reduced power, dashboard warnings on: Story; 02/15 I was driving my 2007 XL7 and the brake pedal got very sensitive and short and tight-quick gripping/biting. I had to touch it extremely lightly when stopping. A few minutes later the car started to tug, and pull back and just created resistance against me when I wanted to give it gas. It was similar to bad gas, like missing and sputtering, but it was different because the car was giving me resistance, not just losing power, I thought that the brakes were trying to seize up. After a stop light, I headed up a hill and the car just fought me down to a dead stop.
