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.

Driver's seat belt became stuck, it was jammed on the inside. Will not come out at all. It has done this before but was able at that time to get it out. Also, when pushing down on the brakes consumer could hear a clanking noise.

problem #1

Jan 272004

(reported on)

Ascender 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,733 miles
The brake pedal went to the floor at a rapid pace when slowing down. This resulted in the vehicle not slowing down immediately. The ABS warning light came on. The dealership replaced the ABS module. The consumer had an accident after being told by the dealer that the brakes worked normally. The brakes would go to the floor and there was a humming sound when the vehicle was turned off.
