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.

Please see previously filed report #10083022. On Monday, August 2, 2004, the brake failure described in the above-mentioned report occurred again. The failure occurred while stopped at a traffic light. I had my foot on the brake, holding the car at the stop. It felt like the car had been tapped from behind, but there was no vehicle behind me. The dash warning came on again showing the same two malfunctions previously listed and the warning beep sounded. This time there was some brake action remaining in the pedal. The car began to idle very roughly, but because there were some brakes left, I drove the car four blocks home. The dealer is picking the car up...again. See voq 10033232 also..
