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.

This is a very big safety issue. brake failure is sudden as the rupture in the brake line is catastrophic and complete brake failure occurs to both front and rear wheels, Master cylinders were supposed to separate rear and front brakes from this type of complete brake failure. But not in this cougar. this is the second line to blow out with warning.
