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.

problem #4

My vehicle's traction control light was coming on periodically, and when that would happen the engine would cut out, & I would not be able to accelerate. I took it in to get it repaired. After the repairs I was driving at about 20 mph, and as I was breaking to turn a corner the ABS, vbs, brake and traction control lights came on. My breaks made a grinding noise, the car began to shake, there were no breaks or steering control, and the engine cut out. This was very dangerous as I had no control and was on a city street in front of a park with children, and I had my son with me. Luckily I wasn't going very fast as the speed limit is 25 mph, and I was approaching the park and my street to turn on to. I was able to get stopped by hitting a curb but couldn't get control of the vehicle otherwise.

When I make a left or right turn my truck completely shuts down motor dies, wheel locks. For a bout 4-9 seconds and then powers itself back up without my control. Its started doing it only in the winter now it it consistent. I al most had a few fatal accidents behind it.

Loss of ABS system, vsc & traction control on interstate at high rate of speed barely avoided collisions. Unsafe. Vsc/ABS/E brake light all on.

Vsc trac, vsc off and ABS lights all come on at once. I took the vehicle to my mechanic and he couldn't pull the code as it was off by the time I got there. Brakes had good pad left. The light came on 3 times today and went off just as unexpectedly.
