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 parking brake cable was reported to be rusting before the issue occurred. Pressing on the parking brake pedal did not help. I found that I was able to temporarily disengage the brake by slowing down or reversing. However, I would advise to stop immediately and have the car towed to a repair shop.
