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.

problem #2

Corolla 4-cyl

It was in a snow storm. I felt I had been keeping a safe distance from the car in front of me (I never had an accident prior). Cars ahead slowed down suddenly. I depressed the brake pedal, could feel ABS was activated. But it could not stop the car soon enough, hit the car in front of me at the right tail light. Bumpers and tail light damaged.

I have a 2010 Toyota Corolla that I have recently purchased and been driving for approx 8 weeks. It has approximately 2400 miles on it. I have had several occasions since purchase where I have experienced my brakes locking and resulting in failing to stop. I have almost been rear-ended on several occasions, as well as almost rear-ending a vehicle in front of me. This mostly occurs when I go over a small bump or a pot hole. I have taken my car to the dealer to check this problem. No problems were found, and they were unable to duplicate the issue. However, within an hour of leaving the dealer I had the same problem where the brakes locked up when I went over a small bump in the road. I have heard about a similar problem with the Toyota prius. My vehicle is a 2010 Corolla. I have driven many cars over the areas where I drive my current vehicle with no similar braking failure issue. I am very concerned about the safety of driving this vehicle. Thank you.
