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.

On March 22, 2010, while backing out of our garage, our Lexus GX470 experienced a brake failure. The driver, [xxx], even opened the driver's side door and put her foot down to try to stop the car. Instead the door was also damaged when the car hit a retaining wall. Later that same day, the brakes failed again, but the car was able to be stopped with the parking brake. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
