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 the anti lock breaks would kick on randomly when at slow speeds. I checked the fluid levels and they were fine. Two days later while, I was on my way to my internship and I pulled into the parking spot, I could not stop. I hit the emergency break to stop myself before rolling down a hill into the building. THIS HAPPENED AT SLOW SPEED. Here it is < three years later the ABS breaks are showing signs of going out. Every year, since I bought it used, I have had to put into the car from $500 to $3000. This vehicle is a lemon. DO NOT BUY ONE!!!!!!! Other problems have been Fuel Pump, Front Axle, all around breaks, hubs, tapping sound from engine and much more. If I did not have a payment I would have junked the car long time ago.
