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.

I have had a master cylinder go bad and upon replacement I have discovered that I am not getting brake fluid to the rear brakes. Both rear sides are not recieving fluid. Problem seems to be occuring at the front near the master cylinder. The is a metal block that recieves fluid from the master cylinder and the distributes it to the ABS system then to the wheels. Fluid is leaving the master cylinder and going to this block but is not leaving it to go to the rear brakes.

We traded our 1999 Kia sportage for a 1998 Dodge Dakota truck 10-12-2000, at the central Kia Subaru dealership in plano Texas. We have had nothing but problems with this truck and we have spent over $800 since we have had the truck. We contacted the Kia dealership ph#972-422-5300, when we started having problems they told us that Dodge was responsible for any repairs etc. The truck is still under warranty we had driven the truck for one month when the problems started. The truck is a lemon and we are stuck with truck payments and we are in debt over the repairs we had to pay for out of our own pockets. This is not right and surely is not fair to us. We took the truck to bledsoe Dodge, Inc.ph#214-296-9800 @ marvin D. love freeway dallas Texas Mr. Jim hurst spoke with us about the leaking brake fluid etc. And he told us that Dodge is not responsible for the repairs because we bought the truck from the Kia dealership. So we had to pay $200 to Mr. Jim hurst at the Dodge dealership for brake repairs. We need some justice with this matter and you are the only people that we believe can help us with this matter. We need our money back that we have been out of because no one wants to take any responsibility for this lemon we have been stuck with. Please help us? sincerely yours mr.& mrs R.D.leismer.
