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.

ABS operated poorly. When the brakes were applied vehicle did not come to a stop immediately. Vehicle moved about 50 feet before stopping after brakes were applied. Consumer took the vehicle to the dealer and no work was done. They charged the consumer, and kept the vehicle for an extended period. But when the consumer picked up the vehicle, the consumer was assured that the work was done. Then, consumer took the vehicle to Goodyear, and consumer was told that nothing was done to the vehicle. Ak the consumer stated the drivers seat belt did not retract and the passengers front door was hard to open from the outside.
