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.

Just had an accident in my BMW 750li, failing to come to a stop at a red light intersection and hitting rear of a Ford Explorer in front of me, causing damage to the center of my front bumper. I had my brakes jammed on for over 10 feet, going at a slow rate of speed, but brakes had no effect and car kept going until impact.
