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.

1. I observered on 3 occassions intermittent low speed braking problems. I took the vehicle to the dealer on 23may05 and they found nothing wrong. 2. while parked and idling the vehicle on 11jun05, there was a loud bang noise from under the hood. A part of the braking sytem from under the hood looks like it seperated under pressure from the rest of the master cylinder. This resulted in loss off most brake fluid. 3. vehicle was towed to shop, but repairs will not commence till 13jun05.
