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 fuse box is located too close to the brake pedal. Every time brakes are applied, foot would hit the fuse box. This would cause the cover of the fuse box to come off. Then the fuses were knocked out & would cause vehicle not have brake lights. Has taken vehicleto dealer & so far the mechanic has repaired it 5 times.
