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 two issues, and have had these issues since buying the car about 3 years ago, when running the car cold the brakes do not depress the first time I brake, it takes alot of force to get the car to stop, if it is warmed up for 15 min or so it will not have the issue, but figures it should be addressed. My other issue is the headlights, they burn out constantly, I change then ever 2 or so months alternating between drivers side and passanger side.

Vehicle sitting in drive. Started vehicle put in reverse and backed out of drive. Put vehicle in drive and it went dead but was rolling...no control, power steering out no brakes.. let vehicle roll to end of street and pressed harder on brakes and it stopped. Put vehicle in park..turned off switch...attempted to start again and put the vehicle in drive and the engine stopped running again. Turned the air off and restarted the engine and put in drive and it ran but the gas pedal was more sensitive than usual got to the house and put in park and put on E-brake. Waited for a couple of hours and started the engine and tried to release parking brake but it would not release. Turned the air on with car running and it died again without shifting into drive. Restarted the car and put in reverse to see if it would die again and the car tried to die so I put in park and cut the engine off and parking brake would still not release.
