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.

When applying the brakes the pedal sometimes goes almost to the floor. Sometimes it feels mushy with a fluid feeling pedal push back. A click noise has also been observed. It is possible to stop the car but the stop feels unstable and dangerous the car has 36,600 miles. While still under warranty in 2006 the dealership could not find the source of the problem. It seemed to go away for a while but has returned (worse than before) in late January 2007.
