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.

problem #1

Sep 052010

Cooper 1.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles


when i had my brake pads replaced, for the first time after i got my car everything had been running smoothly. Then, the ABS, DSC, TPMS lights all came on one at a time, sometimes intermittently, and then sometimes i would start the car and the lights would come on and not go off untill the car was re-started/reset. eventually they all came on and stayed on. then eventally it got to the point that when i would be driving the ABS would kick in when i'm just slowing down at a higher rate of speed...(above 65mph) the pounding on my brakes were awful! I ended up having to replace those took FOREVER to diagnose and forever for the sensor to completely go...when i was told what happened they said it looks like it was cut by one of your belts. well i figured if the car broke itself i should definitely report that i had to pay $382 for an issue that manufacturing could've fixed/prevented.
