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.

Sebring 6-cyl

11/7/2003 traveling North bound on sprinkle rd. In kalamazoo Michigan, my fiancee was stopped at the red light at bl-I94 my vehicle came off the red light traveling at 35 miles per hour. A van or SUV that had also been stopped at the light in front of her swerved into another lane bringing to her view a slow or stopped kalamazoo township police cruiser. My fiancee hit the brakes and the pedal locked to the floor and locked the wheels on the car. At the same time the engine accelerated leaving little to no braking power. My car slid 78 feet according to the skid marks on the pavement only coming to a stop after rearending the police cruiser.

Car delivered with badly warped front brake rotors and the tires were way out of alignment. The conditions described could compromise the ABS system and cause great bodily harm or death to the driver, passengers and anyone hit by this vehicle. Dealer fixed problems at first said vibration was normal for that car. Car was difficult to stop safely.
