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 stated the ABS engaged at speeds of 30 mph and below. The stopping distance was increased as a result. There is a NHTSA recall, # 05V379000, regarding the ABS system. The vehicle has the same problems as the recall; however it is not included in the recall due to the VIN. The vehicle was taken to a local dealership for inspection. The dealer can not duplicate the problem and no repairs were made. Updated 03/03/06.

When vehicle is stopping, it feels as though the brakes are releasing some sort of air. We then have to lift off of the brake in order to fully stop. This has been a problem when trying to make sudden stops.

Several months ago while driving at any speed and when depressing the brakes consumer felt pulsation in the brake pedal. Currently, when the brakes are depressed the pulsation is very severe. Dealer has made an appointment to examine the vehicle. Pulsation occurred fifty times in the last few months.
