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 contact stated that while pulling into a parking space, the vehicle accelarated without effort. There was emergency braking which resulted in the vehicle hitting a concrete support parking structure on the front right side of the vehicle. The vehicle almost continued over the edge of the parking structure which was two stories above the ground. Subsequently, while the vehicle was being driven home the rear ABS brake lights and the brakes lights on the dashboard illuminated. During this period, the vehicle slowed down without applying pressure to the brake. Also, the vehicle surged forward. The contact had the vehicle towed to the dealer and it was examined. According to the dealer, the vehicle would need diagnostic testing at a charge before the brakes chip can be replaced. The dealer determined that there was no abnormal code in the computer.
