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.

During low speed braking brake pedal feels hard, but pressing harder does not stop car. You feel like you lost control of the brakes. Car will roll and slowly decelerate, but not enough. After a few feet of slow deceleration, brakes kick in and provide a large bite which stops the car.
