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.

Driving at steady speed, tried to brake- brake pedal sank to the floor, driver's side front wheel locked up- no apparent braking actually happened, despite pressing on the brake pedal. Locking up of driver's side front wheel caused total loss of vehicle control, causing a 360 degree spin. Car malfunctioned afterwards, could not drive until turned off the engine and restarted the car. There were no warning lights afterward- no brake light, no check engine light, no error message in the dashboard relating to brake failure.
