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.

After refueling and pulling away from a gas station, brakes went almost to floor and car felt like it would not stop. Repeated pumping of brakes restored some braking power. However, after stopping, brakes went almost to floor again. Dealer could not detect problem on first test drive; however brakes failed on second test drive. Invoice for repair says "brake master cylinder leaking (into brake booster). Replaced brake master cylinder and flushed brake fluid". old master cylinder available.
