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 the third time I have had a brake line replaced because according to my mechanic, the poor design allows for the brake line to rub against the shock which eventually wears a hole through the brake line. I've had three separate incidents where my brake pedal has gone completely to the floor. I've had to use my emergency hand brake to keep me from crashing in each instance. I work in the quality field and truly understand defect in design over wear and tear. Brake lines shouldn't have to be replaced every year because of defective design. I am sure there have even serious accidents and perhaps I juries and fatalities because of this design. Again, I work in toy safety and quality and understand that although a product might comply with existing regulations, still be a hazard to a user.
