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.

2002 Toyota Camry brake failure. I was traveling approximately 50 miles an hour when a car entered the lane two cars ahead of me. As they stepped on their brakes, I also did. Only my brakes did not engage properly and the car started to skid out of control. The conditions were dry. I was struck by another car - causing extensive damage to my right front section of the car. I called the Toyota body shop today who told me that they found no problem in the ABS system. I will not drive this car again until I am absolutely sure they discover why my brakes failed to engage.

Three times consumer went to Toyota to tell them that something was wrong with my brakes. The first time, (May 3,03) was braking slowly and 2002 Camry jumped ahead, the brakes did not work. The second time(May 28,03) I consumerwent in, told them brake pedal went slowly down to the floor when stopping for a light. 1993 Camry never did that. Also no ohter car I had did that. They tested, said nothing was wrong. The third timeon July 3, consumertold them, do not tell me nothing was wrong with brakes, did not want to hear it! he drove the car and said nothing was wrong. Now on July 11, 2003, while parked at macy's mall at cross county, I am backing up slowly out of my space, and all of a sudden, consumer's vehicle jumped ahead flying and hit two parked cars facing her. All the vehicles had damage. Consumer will never drive that car again, could have killed someone.
