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 emergency brake pedal assembly failed without warning. As a result the vehicle begin to roll. The dealer states the plastic flange on the left of the ratchet tensioning spring spool broke, which jammed the brake mechanism. When the consumer applied the brake while stopped, it would not set and the vehicle rolled back.

Parking brake would not release. This is the third time repaired. Garage cannot get ratchet from GM because it is on national back order.
