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.

I was driving on city streets, and coming to a stop sign. I started braking, and while braking, I hit a smallish pothole. It felt like my brakes stopped working. Fortunately the brakes started working again before we reached the intersection. I think we were driving 25 mph when this happened. This is the first time it has happened in our new car which is only 1 month old. This was is scary feeling, and unlike any other I've felt. It was not "anti-lock" brakes, as I've experienced that before.
