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.

Brakes did not engage the first time in order to stop the car for parking space. It happened again the following day where I tried to hold the brake pedal to the floor and nothing!!! I retried again a second time and too late car was hit twice in the front destroying whole front end. Car was purchased brand new. I have contacted Fiat hq to further investigate this deadly safety issue.
