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.

Town Car 8-cyl

Contact states: Her brakes have failed 4 times on her car. No lights came on to warn her before this happened. The pedal went down to the floor. This happened 3 times in one day, on 6-1-05 day and another time 3 weeks late on 6-24-05. The dealer could not find the problem. The dealer drove the car 600 miles and the brakes did not fail. The dealer checked the brake fluid and said it was full. The dealer did not have any idea why this would have happened.
