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.

The 1st failure was, after leaving a gas station, my brake pedal went to the floor without warning. I barely missed the car in front.after 4 months, the same thing occurred after leaving a highway at a light. Ok again for a few months, there was a 3rd incident, but I can T remember the details.I hit a small pot hole and the ABS came on. I lost my pedal again.when I shut the car off, the system reset and it was fine. Now whenever the ABS is used, I lose my pedal without warning. It no longer resets. My mechanic has to bleed the system to get my pedal back. Im afraid to drive the car in bad weather. I have had 6 or 7 brake failures in the last 18 months.
