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.

: the contact stated, while traveling 30mph, panic braking was attempted to avoid a vehicle stopped at a red light. The ABS activated and the vehicle slid into the rear of the vehicle stopped at the light. The contact was wearing a seat belt; sustained no injuries and the police took a report at the scene. The vehicle was never inspected to determine what caused the ABS failure.

Contact went to have brakes checked on 8-3-05, just a routine check, and the mechanic noticed that left front caliper bolts were incorrect and have damaged the steering knuckles. He told her the left front wheel was spinning inside the knuckles, within 7 months after purchasing the car had to replace the transmission. Also, the ignition switch was bad.

Consumer states that when trying to apply the anti lock brakes brakes will lock up, causing the vehicle to have extended stopping distance. Dealer notified.

While driving at highway speed of 65 mph brake pressure went to zero and pedal hit floor, causing a longer stopping distance, dealer could not determine cause. Consumer felt defect was caused by a hairline crack in the seal or cylinder head.

The pads would be grinding into the rotors when ABS brakes were applied. The vehicle failed to stop right away. The brake pedal pushed hard to stop. Rotors were cut by brake system after braking to exit ramp. Took to dealer at least 12 different times for brake problem. Was informed by dealer & mechanic not to bring vehicle back on lot. Each time vehicle taken to dealership, manufacturer was notified.
