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.

E Brake snapping so easily is not a good thing for your vehicle especially when you live in the MOUNTAINS. there are lots of elevation drops in the mountains like my driveway.

Hi. The emergency brakes of my manual shift car's not working. I was parking my car as usual and when I pulled the emergency brake up, something snapped. I have to put the emergency brake all the way at the end and its still pretty loose. I don't know much, but maybe a wire got disconnected or something. Can someone please tell me what the problem is and how much it would cost to fix it? Thank you.
