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.

While driving at 20 mph, the consumer applied the brake, however there were no brakes. The vehicle was towed to the dealer. The dealer indicated the failure was due to a clip bushing which was holding the brake together.. the consumer had to use the emergency brake to stop the vehicle.
