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 concerning a 2002 Mitsubishi Montero limited. My wife and daughter were headed down our driveway when the brakes failed. My wife started pumping the brakes and was finally able to stop the car, but, not before the front end was already out in the road. Had there been a car coming, it would have resulted in a crash. NHTSA action number RQ06007 and recall number 01V-254 explain the exact symptoms that my car has; abnormal noise from the left side of the dash when the brakes are applied, and a delayed first time brake boost after the vehicle has been park for a period of time. When I left in the car the next day, I had to pump the brakes several times to get it to stop. Mitsibushi motors, and the dealer, tell me my car is not covered under the recall. Why? it has the exact same symptoms and could have resulted in a crash.
