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.

The contact owns a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo. The contact stated that while driving approximately 25 mph, the brakes would not respond. The ABS warning light illuminated and there was a clicking sound. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for diagnosis. The mechanic stated that the master cylinder, rear calipers, front and rear brakes, and the rotors would have to be replaced. After the repair the failure continued. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not further repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 120,000.
