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.

2004 Saturn Vue underwent comprehensive vehicle test including braks at Saturn of new brunswick on 6/4/05. On 6/24/05 while at full stop in traffic ( slight inline in road), vehicle started to roll while break engaged. Immediate response was to press harder then pumped severeal times without results. My vehicle struck the vehicle in front in the rear at which time I put the vehicle in park and turned of the ignition. The distance of the roll was approx 8 feet at approx 3 mph. There were no injuries. The brakes were operational afterward but reported the failure and returned the vehicle to Saturn of new brunswick. The finding on the service invoice states, "tech verified low pedal, found pedal travel to be too much. Tech removed rear drums to clean and adjust rear brakes, reinstalled and found to be ok at this time. Tech also checked front brakes and calipers, brakes ok".
