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.

Brakes(ABS) are mushy and pedal travels so far down I feel it takes a longer time to stop the car. I took it back to the dealer shortly after purchase but was told this was normal with the 2002's Camry. They adjusted the brakes but it made no difference. I took other 2002 Camry's out for a test drive only to find there brakes the same. I have driven several toyato's over the years and never had brakes like the 2002 Camry. I can't afford to sell the car ao would like the problem solved as I feel this will probaly cause an accident in the future. Thanks Mr. Wagner.
