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.

The contact owns a 2003 Ford F-150. While driving approximately 25 mph, the contact depressed the brake pedal abnormally into the floorboard. The contact continued to apply pressure to the brake pedal and was able to stop the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for diagnostics. The mechanic stated that the ABS hydraulic control unit would have to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 50,000. Updated 7/12/12 the informed the consumer, the brake master cylinder needed to be replaced.
