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 the brakes went out, it was before Christmas holiday. The fluid began to leak out and I almost missed my turn because I couldn't stop. When I had a mechanic look at the problem, he was amazed at how the brake plate pulled back away from wheel hub and how it snapped the bolts off the calipers. It looked like a major accident happened but I never hit anything or anyone.
