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.

Girlfriend left her Jetta home because she works 1/2 hour away and several other things are happening with it. I work right down the street so she gets my Mazda and I get her VW Problem. We just got a fresh glaze of ice on our Michigan roads yesterday and today, upon turning into my lot at work, I realized (halfway through a 270 degree spin) that the emergency brake had locked on. No warning lights or bells. ER brake handle in the disengaged position. Just one more $100-$700 fix for this mouthbreather of a car.
