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.

At a speed of 40-60 mph when I brake my car shakes really bad. I have taken to advantage BMW in clear lake, tx twice. The first time they changed the brakes. The second time I had a bubble in my tire and got it replaced along with a balance and alignment. I drive on the hwy. 5 days a week and every time I press on my brake my car shakes. Even after the new tire, balance and alignment it still shakes when I apply my brakes. I feel a hard vibration when braking and a squeaking when backing up. I took my car to the dealership October 2 and 5 months prior to that for the same thing. It is not fixed.
