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.

Rendezvous 6-cyl

Weird noise coming from back wheels. Dealer found that rear brake pads were worn down to rotors. Vehicle had 22,000 miles. Dealer fixed rear brakes under warantee and resurfaced front brake rotors. Dealer indicated that this was a problem they had been seeing on the Buick rondezvois'. I thought this was very unsafe.
