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.

Brake failure. After 36 months of leasing a 2002 Lincoln Ls, my wife and I purchased the vehicle with it having approximately 28,000 miles in September 2005. In December of that year with less than 30,000 miles, my wife had a minor traffic accident when while braking the car failed to stop. The brakes had been serviced in August for a squeal. There was no excessive wear but the rotors were re-surfaced. Prior to this incident there had been no other braking problems.
