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 my 2000 Ford Windstar's transmission serviced and when I picked it back up the technician pointed out to me that I am leaking brake fluid from a switch on the master cylinder. I was informed that this is very dangerous because the loss of fluid can cause my brakes to stop working. The technician also informed me that brake fluid is flammable and might cause a fire if it is not repaired right away.

2000 Ford Windstar. Brake fluid leaking out of the connector at the bottom of the brake cylinder-caused an electrical short (started smoking), now the ABS light is staying on and fuse # 10 keeps blowing. When fuse 10 goes so does the operation of the speedometer and cruise control.

I had to stop abruptly for a child that ran into the street. My brakes when to the floor. After this took place I continued to have problems with my brakes; no or little brake pressure, low brake fluid even after filling this. The mechanic could not find anything wrong but felt maybe the master cylinder was bad, this was replaced. I continually still have problems with the brakes; no or little brake pressure and the brake fluid needing to be filled.
