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 approached an intersection with a traffic signal...I attempted to stop my truck by applying the truck went right through the red light and eventually stopped after the intersection. I heard a noise right before the truck actually stopped. I pulled off the main highway and tried applying the brakes again and they seemed to be okay. I proceeded home very slowly.

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,000 miles
: the contact stated upon starting the vehicle in the morning, without any warning signal to indicate brake failure, the brake pedal was depressed and would not go all the way to the floor. The vehicle was towed to the dealership who determined a vacuum line had disconnected due to oil presence in the connection. The rubber hose was replaced. The contact denied any traces of oil in the surrounding of the vacuum hose connection. Updated 11/03/06.
