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.

An emergency stop from highway speeds (65 mph) on hot (85+F) dry pavement resulted in a significantly less than expected braking capacity. Best guess is that the traction control system throttled back available braking capacity. Brake pedal can be pushed to the floor at will but the traction control system takes over braking. The brakes cannot be immediately released and additional pressure (braking) cannot be applied.
