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.

2005 Toyota Sienna. Consumer writes in regards to brake failure. The consumer stated several weeks ago, he was turning around in the driveway, and when he pressed down with his right foot, the engine roared and the vehicle jumped forward until he applied more pressure to the brake pedal, at which point the vehicle stopped. The consumer realized the brake pedal could be depressed easily below the level of the gas pedal, hence the roar and surge. The consumer was informed brake pedals were no longer adjustable and when the mechanic checked the vehicle, the brake master cylinder was failing and accounted for the brakes not functioning properly at times.
