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.

I have multiple occurrence where my vehicle does not response when I hit the brakes. Its like the ABS system is not working. It has happened several times. I notice it happen more often if I hit a bump in the road. The problem usually occurs at a slow about of speed. I have been able to avoid accidents by swerving out of the way of cars, but I believe sooner or later I will get into an accident.
