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.

In cold weather, the brakes may stay engaged, even upon releasing the brake pedal. This will happen sporadically, and usually upon starting for the first time at a given day. I will start driving, then brake when required, release the brake when I want to resume driving, but the brakes may remain engaged.
