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.

While driving into a parking lot area and attempting to stop, the brakes failed. Consumer could not push the pedal down. As a result, the vehicle went over a metal fence, down to lower level and landed on two other vehicles causing heavy damage. Dealer stated nothing is wrong with the vehicle unless it is an intermittent problem which will be hard to diagnose.
