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.

When applying brakes, brake light comes on. Has to pull brake pedal up from floor. Brake lights do not turn off unless the brake pedal is manually pulled up. This occurs both at low and high positions of pedal adjuster. The dealer could not duplicate the problem.

While driving brakes were making a grinding noise. Brakes would skip before they stopped vehicle. While coming to an intersection brakes failed, they allowed consumer to slow down. Then, consumer had to put car in park. Consumer had vehicle towed to dealer.
