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.

Hello, I own a 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe 5.3L, 167k, I occurred a significant loss of braking power while exiting a major expressway approaching a red light. I applied my brakes and as my vehicle was slowing down the brake pedal went down completely to the floor! luckily I didn't go through the intersection and kill myself and others! The next morning I noticed a puddle of oil by my drivers door underneath my vehicle which turned out to be brake fluid, So I checked my fluid reservoir and it was empty. I felt this was a major problem as well as a costly one! AS IT TURNS OUT I RECEIVED A CALL FROM THE CHEVY DEALER WHERE I HAD IT TOWED AND I WAS TOLD $1400.00 PARTS AND LABOR FOR RUSTED OUT BRAKE LINES !!!!!! WTF

YOU GOT TO BE F#CKING KIDDING ME !!!! I'M CURRENTLY ON WORKERS COMPENSATION AND CANNOT AFFORD THIS !!!!

Things are really starting to rot away on this old gal. I was surprised to see the level of rust on the front brake lines after I lost half of my braking system. The only solution is to replace it all. Ordered new bulk brake line, fittings,cutting tool, flaring tool, and bender. Wish me luck !!
