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.

While pulling inside of a parking space consumer applied the brakes. There was a loud squeaking noise and the pedal was very hard. The dealership is aware of the problem. Tsthe ABS light would intermittently illuminate. Consumer feels this is an issue of design or part flaw.

During wet conditions 1 brake will lock up causing the other 3 brakes to fail to operate. This has happened several times, once causing me to slide into an intersection. I had the same problem with a 1997 Dodge Dakota which, I assume has a very similar

In 3 occurrences, the brake pedal was stiff when pressed and the vehicle did not break. On one occasion, no braking at all resulted in a crash. Visited the dealer several times, dealer cannot determine the problem.
