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.

This is not the first time I had problems breaking I actually had my master cylinder replaced as well as my break pads. I was pulling up to a stop light today going only about 12 miles per hour as I was in a business area. I was pulling up to a stop light already breaking at 12 miles per hour or less my car speed off on its on running the red light! I almost had a heart attack. Lucky no cars was in front of me. I replaced my break pads thinking that was the problem. I had my master cylinder replaced as well so that's not the problem. Has anyone else with my car been in an accident with my car?

My mother pulled in my driveway to park. The car made a weird sound and then accelerated at a quick speed. She pressed on the brakes and had skid marks to prove it, but the car would not stop. She ran into the next door neighbor's brick house. This happened on an easter Sunday. My sister was in the front seat. My mother had abrasions from the seat belt and severe bruises to the chest from the air bag. My sister had bruising to her ribs and her leg was cut, which resulted in 5 stitches.

While driving, suddenly ABS indicator, ESC off indicator and "ABS system failure" message on dashboard showed up and had to make emergency stop since all of these scared me. Also scared me that vehicle's ABS and stability control stop working. - after started driving slowly - some noise from front wheels were coming. Went to dealer and told us that issue with "wheel speed sensor" and "tone wheel" damaged.. why these sensors are exposed to road and damaged suddenly that make safety issue during driving and may have caused accident.
