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.

We were driving in a slow speed when I wanted to stop slowly and the car did not stop, and felt like it got stuck in the middle of the way of the brakes, then stop suddenly and accelerated. It was frightening because we were to a short distance to crash. I was with my husband and my dog was in the back seat when all this happened. We took the car to the dealer, they made an inspection but they told us that the car was fine and that the brakes were working pretty well, this revision was the next day (April 16th). On the 28th of the same month when we were driving in the freeway it happened again. We are really concern about the safety of this car.
