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.

While driving 30 mph, the driver applied the brakes, because the motorist in front of her slammed on the brakes and when the consumer attempted to apply the brakes, the brake pedal went down to the floor which caused a collision. The consumer had the vehicle towed to the dealer and the mechanic noticed that the rotors and other brake parts needed replacement.
