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.

While applying brakes at 25 mph the brake pedal went to the floor and the vehicle continued on through an intersection controlled by a stop sign. Consumer was able to coast the vehicle through the intersection without an accident and bring the vehicle to a stop. Vehicle was towed to a repair shop and to a dealer, who informed consumer that the brake line leading to the rear needed to be replaced due to corrosion.
