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 2005 Ford Ranger. While traveling at speeds of 5 mph, the contact applied the brakes and the brakes would not engage. In order to bring the vehicle to a stop, the contact had to shut off the engine, causing the brakes to lock. The vehicle was taken to the dealership where the brake booster, rotors, and front disc were replaced. The failure and current mileages were 46,000.
