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 consumer stated his pant leg continued to get stuck on the brake pedal. The consumer was concerned that will prohibit him from braking in an emergency. Please provide additional information. The consumer talked to other owners of the same vehicle and found that they have the same problems of pant cuffs slipping over the emergency brake pedal when entering the vehicle.

When applying the brake in an emergency situation the pedal goes all the way to the floor or very close to it.
