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 2001 Hyundai Accent. The contact stated that the brake pedal traveled to the floorboard when depressed. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who noticed extensive rusting on the brake lines and was deteriorating. The vehicle was repaired. On another occasion, the vehicle was inspected and it was noticed that there was extensive rust and corrosion near the front of the framing near the front wheels and the motor mount. The mechanic diagnosed that the frame needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 93,000.
