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.

ABS system activision on dry pavment surfice somewhat rough, I travel this route often and the street surfice has not change. It is my opionion that ABS activation is due to poor strut performance however based on the "jump or push down on a corner of the vehical and see if it stop in less than one and one-half bounces the unit sill works. It is my opionion that ABS is sensitive to shock ware much earlyer then non ABS cars. This problem can create longer braking, resulting in accidents and damage. This is not my first not to the NHTSA about this concern but on my 1992 roadmaster had the same problem, even if the shop said the shock were within safity limits with the bounce test the shock change fixed the ABS cycles in all conditions that were normal (non ice) thank you for your consideration into this matter of safety bob urmetz
