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.

Identifying a design fault. All four brake pipes were rusted through at the front termination at the ABS block inboard of the left front wheel.

This area is covered by a gravel deflector.

With regular car wash and underbody sprays, it was felt that road salt would have been removed from the pipes to prevent untimely corrosion. However, such car wash spraying does not reach the pipes at their front termination because of the deflector being in the way.; Therefore spray is collected and retained in that area and resists removal because of the deflector.

Bad idea.!!
