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.

Complete brake failure. First time it occurred was on the interstate - 65 miles an hour and the brake light and the ABS light came on and there was a beep. There were then no brakes at all. Luckily, I was able to get to the side of the road and coast to a stop. Turned off the truck and started it again and it had brakes. On this last incident, the same thing in the same order happened. Thankfully, my wife was able to get the vehicle to coast to a stop without hitting anyone or anything. This problem is very dangerous. It is intermittent thus making it hard to diagnose.
