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 failed going 70 mph on the freeway. Absolutely no brakes and pedal went complete to floor without no stopping. Used emergency brake and rear-ended car in front. No air bags went off. Car speed was about 35-40mph at time of impact due to slowing from emergency brake.

On three separate occasions vehicle would intermittently commence to accelerate while applying the brake pedal. Vehicle had been to the dealer, who was unable to duplicate the problem.. while at alight vehicle accelerated and surged, forcing the driver to shift into neutral until engine stopped accelerating.
