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.

While driving at 4:30 am on July 9th, 2005, my wife experienced a momentary brake faluire while exiting a frewway ramp at anthem way in anthem, AZ wjile traveling about 65 mph. The brakes restored themselves prior to a stoplight at the off-ramp of anthem way and I-17. I have experienced this on a few occaions, but thought it was just my imagination. I have not sought recourse from the dealer, even though the vehicle is under an extended warranty, as I realize that they have to reproduce the problem, which does not manifest itself that often. I believe having been in fleet mangement for 25+ years, that it may be a faulty brake valve. Also I am a member of nafa. There was not any accident.
