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.

Driving in a residential area and hit my brakes to avoid a car stopping abruptly. My brakes went soft and I had to swerve to avoid slamming into the back of the vehicle. My brakes remained very soft with little to no braking power for at least a day. This is the second occurrence in a month. The brakes when pressed were very soft and whistled when I lifted my foot. I recorded the sound for documentation.
