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 contact owns a 2005 Hummer H2. The contact stated that while coming to a stop, the brakes failed to respond when the brake pedal was depressed. In addition, an abnormal squeaking sound was heard from the steering wheel. The failure recurred intermittently. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the hydraulic brake booster accumulator cracked and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The VIN was not included in the NHTSA campaign number: 05V043000 (service brakes, hydraulic). The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 81,500.
