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.

Grand Prix

  • 65,000 miles


After driving to several stores, upon starting my car I noticed the brake pedal went almost to the floor. I started to pull from the parking space and it took me a long time to stop. I parked and had my car taken to a repair shop. The brake line was rusted through. The mechanic said that should not have happened to a car with only 69,000 miles on it and was a poor design as the brake line runs over the wheel well. He said there are others that will also fail soon. I am going to have them all replaced. My parking brake cable also broke a few weeks ago. Luckily this did not cause an accident.
