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.

I was traveling in bumper to bumper traffic with family and friends traveling at about 10 mph when I went to apply the brakes and the car would not react I then applied both feet standing on the pedal announcing I wasn't stopping and nudged into the back of the car in front of me. It left only minor damage to my vehicle and none to the one I hit. I shut the car off and turned it back on and the brakes seems to work again. I took the car to the dealership the next morning and they reviewed the issue for a few days and could find nothing wrong and said everything tested fine. I frankly do not trust the safety of the vehicle and will now only drive it myself. I am a retired police officer and former employee of NHTSA region 8 with 20 years of crash reconstruction experience and I have never personally had a brake failure so it is concerning. I wanted to submit the report for tracking purposes in case others encounter the problem or their is a future problem with this vehicle. Thank you.
