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.

When the vehicle was turned off, the brake vacuum leaked causing brake failure when starting the vehicle. The mechanic replaced the check valve but the problem still exists. The engine died while driving, thee was not enough vacuum on the brake system to stop the vehicle. GM stated that they had a lot of problems with the check valve and booster.
