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, when the brakes are applied, the vehicle will experience extended stopping distance, almost causing accident(s). The dealership cannot locate problem, and is aware that the vehicle cannot be repaired properly. Ts the problems are as followed: Rattling noise, lever on passenger side broken off the side pocket of the door, skidding, difficulty stopping on dry pavement/nose diving, engine symbol appearing on the instrument panel flashing/then the vehicle would start to shake, and misfiring with forward thrusting movements, as is if it were to shut down. The braking system was found faulty due to a missing brake combination valve which cause skidding, and the way the vehicle will stop. The front driver side wheel drags. The tires crumbled inside and had blown apart-Firestone. Scc
