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.

Travelling the freeway, I needed to slow the vehicle but when I started to move my right foot, something held it in place. I lifted my right foot and proceeded to depress the brake pedal but the pedal would not move. I two-footed the brake pedal and heard something crack afterwhich the pedal started to move and I rgained the use of my brakes. An examination revealed a plastic duct wedged between the brake pedal and the floor board. The duct was part of the ventilation system which had fallen off and wedged between the brake pedal and the floor board.
