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.

The contact owned a 2016 Chevrolet cruz. While driving approximately 35 mph, the check power steering warning light illuminated. When attempting to stop the vehicle, the brakes were inoperable. After coasting to the side of the road, black smoke was present coming from the window vents. While attempting to exit the vehicle, the doors would not immediately unlock. The contact was able to exit the vehicle and witnessed flames under the hood of the vehicle. The fire department was called to the scene and extinguished the fire. The vehicle was destroyed. The cause of the fire was not determined. There were no injuries and a police report was not filed. The manufacturer was notified. The VIN was not available. The failure mileage was 10,000.
