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 brakes failed to stop the car on a rocky off-road mountain public access road. The road consisted of a low grade incline, and the anti-lock brakes froze and caused the vehicle to skid and the brakes froze up and the vehicle was gaining momentum dangerously for about 30 seconds until the grade leveled. However, I was found myself looking for a place to run off the road to stop the car before it finally stopped. I was lucky there were no other vehicles coming toward me around the curves. I have driven rocky mountain roads many times before, and I assumed that this vehicle would be safe to drive, but it was not suitable to off-road driving. I want to warn others to not take this vehicle off road, even though it looks like and is assumed by buyers as a safe vehicle driving in rocky, off-road conditions.
