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.

  • Automatic transmission

The contact stated when applying brake pressure the brakes id not completely stop the vehicle. This was more prevalent when stopping at a red light. While brake pressure was applied the vehicle will slowly roll. This defect is intermittent in nature. She took the vehicle to the dealer, who discovered brake fluid leaked in the master cylinder. The vehicle is currently at the dealership.
