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.

DeVille 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

While driving 10 mph vehicle accelerated, and consumer tried to stop the vehicle by pressing the brake pedal. Brakes failed, but the vehicle slowed down to a stop without incident. Mechanic did a diagnostic test which found no errors or codes. Also, mechanic kept the vehicle for a week to see if the problem would occur again. However, mechanic was unable to duplicate the problem. The consumer was approaching a stop sign and was forced into the road almost hitting a beer truck when the brakes did not activate. (the ABS light had come on)
