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.

My 2005 Ford Mustang parking brake cable has locked up each of the last two winters. I have read several similar incidents. The 2nd time my dealer suggested I not use the parking brake in winter. Why has Ford not recalled and redesigned this part?

In December the temp. Got down to 17 degrees, because of the cold weather my emergency brake locked my back wheels up. I took it into the Ford company and they unlocked them. I was told that they had froze and needed to be replaced or not to use emergency brake until it warmed back up.
