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 down a steep hill, applied brake and car seemed to accelerate rather than brake. Then, turned into subdivision and brake pressure went away completely then came back after finished turn.

The brakes tended not operate while driver stepped on the brake pedal. Took vehicle to dealer for repairs four times, but the problem recurred.

I was driving this vehicle on a dry clear day. When I exited the highway and slowed down in the exit lane by tapping the brakes the car turned 90 degrees toward the inside of the circle and proceeded off the road. The car behaved like it was on a sheet of ice even though it was a warm dry day.
