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.

This is a follow up to complaint number 10280337. Brake pedal instability has led to failure of hydro-boost pump. This resulted in brakes being applied with no brake pedal interaction by operator. This led to overheated brakes and loss of ability to stop vehicle.

Brake pedal has developed 3/4" lateral movement.

Local dealer briefly examined pedal and verified this lateral movement is abnormal and a problem exists with the mechanism in the adjustable brake pedal.
