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.

On 1/4/04, we were traveling down I95 in Florida. As we approached an overpass, the traffic had come to a stop. I applied the brakes and truck slowed down, but when it reached around 10 mph, the truck kept going. I had both feet on the brake and the truck wouldn't stop. I hit the car in front of me (2 adults, 3 children) who in turn hit the car in front of them (2 adults). No one was injured. When we got home, I went to change the brakes and noticed the rotors were flaking and disintegrating.
