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.

2016 Toyota Prius Owner Comments

When gently applying brakes for a stop light, and the right wheel hits a 1 and 1/8 inch deep depression in the road, the brakes feel like they momentarily release. The depression is for a 9 inch diameter city water cover, and the overall diameter of the depression is 12 inches, and it is 1 and 1/8 inches deep. This can be replicated at this location and we have also noticed the same thing happening elsewhere in town.
