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.

problem #1

May 202006


  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,777 miles


: the contact stated while driving 20 mph the brakes suddenly failed. There were no warning lights prior to the incident. The brake pedal was hanging loose and was inoperable. The vehicle was towed to a dealership. The rod connecting the brake pedal to the master cylinder was misaligned. The dealership determined this happened at the factory and informed the contact they had never seen anything like it. The service dealer repaired the vehicle by replacing several unknown brake components. Updated 6-12-2006. The consumer reported the failure to the manufacturer. The vehicle would not crank due to a dead battery.
