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.

Consumer has a Subaru Baja and the hand brake does not keep vehicle from rolling backwards on a hill. Consumer took vehicle to dealer 3 times. First, dealer adjusted brake, but this did not fix the problem. Consumer believed this actually made problem worse. Consumer said that vehicle rolled faster after adjustment. On the other two trips to dealer nothing was done to vehicle other than technician taking vehicle on a test drive to see the problem. Technician saw the problem and said this was normal. Consumer has had this problem since he owned vehicle. It was bought new. No brake work was done T other than the one adjustment that dealer made.
