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've always had problems with brakes squeaking and bad braking distance. I noticed how bad the breaking was when I drove my MIL toyota sienna which had a much smaller breaking distance at higher speeds. I have had the breaks serviced many times and complained about the breaking. The breaking distance is dangerous. Just the other day I had a man stop in from of me at 50-55 mph. When I tried to stop, everything locked up and was unsteerable. The airbags did not deploy. I tried to steer it into the grassy ditch next to me to no avail. Sure I got a lot of miles, but I had a feeling this was going to happen as in the country here no one uses signals before turning or turning signals are inadequateley used. I have been in another accident due to the inadequate breaking. I tried to break going 5 mph and it took way too long to stop! i pushed my toyota at the same speed and was able to stop in 1/3 of the distance the neon did.
