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.

: the contact stated the brake indicator light illuminated. The following day while driving 55mph the brake pedal vibrated and traveled to the floor. The vehicle was towed to the dealership. Upon inspection the dealer determined there was no brake fluid in the reservoir. The defective seals allowed brake fluid to drain from the brake booster and into the master cylinder. The dealer replaced the reservoir, brake booster and master cylinder.
