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.

  • 161,000 miles


The contact owns a 1998 Chevrolet S10. While driving at approximately 40 mph pressure was applied to the brake pedal and it depressed all the way to the floor. The vehicle coasted to a stop and she pulled over. She was able to drive the vehicle home but it has not been taken to be examined for the cause of failure and was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified and she was informed her vehicle was not included in the recall associated with NHTSA campaign id number 97V218000, service brakes, hydraulic:foundation components:hoses, lines/piping, and fittings. The failure and current mileages were 161,000.
