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 owns a 2009 Pontiac Vibe. The contact was sitting at a traffic stop with the brakes depressed when the brake pedal suddenly fell to the bottom of the floorboard. The contact stated the failure would occur intermittently. The dealer replaced the master cylinder and brake booster but to no avail. The contact stated the vehicle had been taken to the dealer at least ten times in regards to the failure. The failure persisted and the dealer then advised that the brake pedal was operating as designed. The failure mileage was 10,000 and the current mileage was 26,909.
