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.

Driving in stop and go traffic (5-20 mph), when I stepped on the brakes with normal pressure for this type of city driving. At this time I heard a loud grinding noise and I had to drive off the road to avoid hitting the car ahead because the vehicle did not stop. It took longer and much more pressure than just a regular tap on the brake needed to stop it at this speed. I drive on this road every day and there was nothing wrong with the road or weather. I called roadside assistance and had it towed to the dealership. No problem was identified. I am no w afraid to drive this vehicle for fear of repeat incident.

Dealer confirmed brake failure due to total loss of all brake fluid, "verified no brakes & master cylinder empty, found brake fluid leaking from ABS module brake lines. Tighten all (16) brake lines." Dealer svs told me the lines had not been tightened at the factory.
