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.

I am so disappointed in my new 2008 Saturn Sky. I've had to take it to las vegas 3 times for brake problems. At start up there are no brakes for the first 45 to 60 seconds. The brakes go from rock hard, to crunchy, and then finally working. The dealer is telling us now, that this is normal for this car. We were not warned of the brakes before we bought the car! the 3rd time we took it in for the start up brake problem and for the brakes not working when stepping on the brake while using cruise control! this happened to me going 55 miles per hour down the highway. Was told by the dealer that there was nothing wrong with the vehicle and was given a print out saying that the vehicles brakes are normal for this vehicle! the brakes failed to work again going down the highway at 75 miles per hour! this can not be normal. Anyone else having cruise control brake problems with their 2008 Saturn Sky"? does someone have to die before they decide it is not normal for the brakes not to work??" on this form I put the incident date as September, which is right after I bought the car. The cruise control issue started in Feb 08.
