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 was driving at approximately 50mph and started slowing down to get on the freeway during rush hour. I had a hard time braking and notice the accelerator was stuck. The car was still accelerating even when I applied the brakes. I had to push as hard as I could on the brakes to get the vehicle to slow down. This incident went on for at least three miles until the accelerator popped back to it's original setting. The same thing has happened in three separate incidents since.

I learned after state safety inspection at inspection site 44994, spiros on boston street, salem, MA that my brakes are defective. My auto passed safety inspection with bad brakes. I suspect a special relationship with class II auto dealer shamrock motors, the inspection overlooked the brake problem. T. tires of cannel street salem found rotor and brake needed replacement, when fixing a flat tire. When approaching norm, owner, shamrock motors he insisted that I am a liar with memory problems. He explained pre-sales that demanding customers would have their cars purchased back rather than honoring the Massachusetts consumer laws for the cars he sold. The mechanical work is done by [xxx] of creedon auto repair on canal street in salem. [xxx] was insistent that no auto leaves his shop with safety defects, yet the brakes of this auto are defective. As a disabled elder, I believe that I am the subject of no less than over enthusiastic salesmanship, fraud, and deception by norm at shamrock who calls me a liar and mentally deficient. These threats to my character make me fearful to return. I believe that there is a conspiracy between shamrock, spiros, and creedon. I have no evidence of this conspiracy, I just know that at least one of my brakes is faulty. Another question is the milage on the odometer being accurate.

I installed new rear brakes, then I stepped on the brakes and the pedal went to the floor, I check around and found that the steel brake tubing was rusted out and sprung a leak, repaired two of the four steel tubings, now it was lucky for me I was in the back lawn, . now if I was on the road who knows what could happened. How can a big company like Chrysler get away with installing steel brake lines. It should be illegal to install such a hazard.. I wander how many accidents have been caused by this and if any one died because of this, they should be sued big time tony caputo ps this is accident, my son called me and said his rv Chrysler did the same thing.he was on the road, he managed to get home ok, there should be some kind of recall on this, it is very very very dangerous.
