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.

Ongoing problems with vehicle brakes which severely limits stopping ability. Intermittent severe vibration in front end of vehicle during light to moderate braking, especially at highway speeds (45-70 mph). Vibration and resulting loss of traction and control of vehicle versus road surface greatly reduces stopping capability of vehicle. This problem also appears to negatively effect ABS operation since smooth braking cannot be applied and therefore ABS will not engage in most instances. Vehicle has been inspected several times by dealer, but they have been slow and uncooperative in resolving the problem. I have also forwarded the dealer and the regional service director copies of postings on several vehicle/make related web forums (e.g. describing similar problems with braking in this vehicle across the us.
