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.

As I was driving down a main route with high traffic travelling approximately 35 mph the car felt as if someone stepped on the brakes twice. The car slowed down abruptly almost to a stop. I pulled over to the side of the road and shut off the vehicle. I was 1/2 mile from my house so I decided to proceed home. I started up the car and slowly drove down the road. Within minutes the brakes automatically applied themselves again slowing the vehicle dramatically. I proceeded to drive to my garage and called the dealership in the morning. They sent a tow truck and towed it to the dealership to repair where it has been since 12/23/10. This is a major safety problem. I will never drive that car again.
