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 #2

When braking at a low speed <10mph the ABS system kicks in and pushes the vehicle forward when trying to brake. It started occuring randomly and very few times, but now is constant and everytime when slowing down. After taking it to the dealer, I had 4 new tires put on, by suggestion of the shop, and it failed to fix the problem. I had numerous close calls and eventually hit a meter when trying to park. The ABS triggers a kicking feeling that allows the truck to continue moving forward at least 3-5 feet after the brake is applied, even at very low speeds <5mph.
