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.

2 years earlier, the GMC dealership claimed they changed the brake lines because they said it was the cause of me having a severe accident. This time I was just driving threw town where the speed limit is 20, and the abs light and brake lights came on. I pulled over and shut the car off, and restarted it. The lights came back on when I was pulling into my driveway. I again shut down the car and restarted it and pulled into my parking spot. When in the parking spot, I stepped on the brake harder, and it went to the floor. I did this 3 times. I then shut the car off and looked underneath and seen the brake fluid all over the ground. It is still where I parked it, but will need to get the lines replaced. WTF. Why should this happen? We have vehicles many years older and never had a problem like this before. What is dangerous is that it could happen when you are on a highway at high speeds and you will not know your in trouble until you have an emergency. Very very dangerous.
