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 have a 2006 Scion Tc. This car has the same problem like the prius. When I go over bumps, railway tracks, puddles or when it is raining the brakes stop for a second. It has happened to me like 4 times.. I have talked to the dealer, I have talked to my mechanic they all say that my brake is fine and it is more than 90%. but I could swear I have noticed this and I am scared to drive this car on the freeway. I told my mechanic many times that this car has that problem and he always says Toyota is a good car, may be it is in your head. Now I see that so many are with me. Finally someone is believing me.

There was a brake failure on the car. The maker of the car is Scion (Toyota) the year is 2006. This caused me to get into a car accident its a new car with around 3000 miles on it. I had it for less than three months. I didn't not do any modification on the car every thing I need it was done including oil change, I went to the dealers.
