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 accident happened while I was driving home from the dealer. While driving up a hill a SUV three cars in front of me slammed on their brakes and stopped in the middle of a two lane road to make a left hand turn. The other two SUV's in front of me were forced to hit their brakes hard. From a speed of 35 mph and a following distance of four car lengths I applied the brakes. Nothing happened. As I applied the brakes harder the car still failed to slow down other than for the slight bit from going up hill. I was forced to fully depress the brake pedal, but still nothing happened. Moments later I impacted the rear of the third car that had stopped in front of me. As a result of the accident my car requires extensive repairs to the front end. The two cars in front were not involved in any collision. After the accident there were no skid marks that would have indicated the brake had locked up and the airbags did not deploy.
