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 calipers on the rear brake do not release when the parking brake is released inside the passenger cabin. In some cases the brake was on so tight that the right rear wheel dragged on the road. I had the vehicle back to the dealer 6 times but they were unable to get the issue corrected. The issue is much worse in the winter but even now in the spring when I put the brake on there is no resistance for the first 4 inches so I know it is still not operating properly.
