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.

Kia Forte ex 2014 ESC light came on and my brake lights wont light up when stepping on the brake. The brake pedal feels stiff when braking to a stop. Checked all plugs and bulbs and they all are good, called dealer and was told it might be the brake light switch and will take me in on Monday.
