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.

Ever since I got a new stereo stystem installed into my car, whenever I apply pressure to the brakes the radio and heater shuts off then comes back on after I let go of the brakes.. That was the problem in the beginning and NOW the car completely shuts off by itself while im driving it, and I have to press the brakes and move the transmission back and forth until the car starts back up again, I dont know it takes about 15 minutes. Its really scary because i could get killed in this situation, Im afraid to drive my car.
