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 ABS control unit first failed at 12692 miles last April. The dealer stated that this was an intermittent failure and reset the codes. I was told that if the unit failed again it would be replaced. It failed last Friday. The dealer does not stck the control unit and it takes 3-5 working days to order the part. The control unit is now giving intermittent failure signals as the car is driven.

Was going 15 mph. Car in front slamed on brakes, we slammed on brakes, the brakes went all the way to the floor, and the car didn't stop. Ran into the truck in front of us and smashed the right corner panel.
