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.

The contact stated that his brakes were defective. The first time it occurred at 3,535 miles. They looked at them and tightened something. The second time it happened at 5567 miles, they replaced the brake pads. The third time it occurred at 5,947 miles. GM said that there was a flaw in the brakes. The pads were crystallizing. The contact noticed a problem with the brakes at 3,500 miles. GM told the dealer not to do anything else to the brakes on 6-30-05. The contact said that there were no lights that came on prior to the brake problems. The engine light had come on due to poor fuel, and acceleration felt as if it were going to stall.

Got recall letter about clip that secures the brake push rod to the brake pedal arm pin, could have been ben. T when it was installed a bent clip may have come off, allowing the brake booster push rod to separate from the brake pedal. If this happens the brake may not work at all. Tried to get in contact with the federal trade commission, and could not get through. Called dealer, and they didn't have part to fix problem yet. She was concerned about driving the car before the part was replaced.
