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 pressing on brakes they would get hard. Brakes get harder as day wears on. Vehicle would buck if stopped at light or sign. Makes a swooshing sound. Can feel brake pedal fighting back. Have taken to indpendent mechanic, and was informed brake power booster was gone and was leaving no power brakes.
