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.

Car would not stop when brakes were applied. The last time it happened, my wife was parking on the second deck of a parking lot and only a barrier stopped her from going over the edge. A similar problem happened twice before. We are not certain if the vehicle surged a bit when applying the brakes or if it just didn't stop. Either way, the brakes didn't work as intended when driving at a low speed. One of the other times my wife ended up in the middle of an intersection but fortunately no one else was in the intersection at the time and the other time it happened to me and I was able to stop before facing any serious risk.
