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.

Brakes were working fine as I parked the car. Turned the car off, and turned back on and drove at about 5 mph. Applied breaks to stop at intersection, brake hydrolics were not working. Had to press really hard for brake to work. Brakes should not have failed suddenly. Brakes still not working, need to talk to dealer on Monday..
