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.

Emergency brake failed to work properly when engaged. Vehicle would be moving. Also, fuse was replaced twice/ air came through the hatchback & doors/ muffler kept making clunking noise/bumper has been replaced 3 times, and tires would lose traction when the brakes were applied.

Lights: Life span of tail lights is much shorter than expected. Emergency brake lever: When applying emergency brake, a loud "pop" is heard and the sound of a spring (normally, theres a clicking sound and the lever is raised). Lever moves to a much higher position than normal. If the emergency brake is released, then re-engaged, it works properly. Failures are not predictable.
