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 had purchased the car a week and a half prior to the accident. There was enough distance for me to make a sudden stop, going 35 mph in order to avoid a collision. However, the brakes failed and I hit the vehicle in front of me, which made the airbags deploy, smashing the windshield. Because of the deployment of the airbags, the car was deemed a "total loss" and the repairs (estimated to be $8,700.00) would have far exceeded the car's worth. After the accident, I had found out that the original owner had difficulties with the brakes, even when the car was new.
