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.

Brake rotors out of round. Manufacturer warranty does not cover this condition. Braking while turning vehicle has poor steering control of steering caused by excessive wheel vibration. Driver can pump brake to stablize control.

When driving at any speed and applying brakes, vehicle is pulling to the left and to the right. Has replaced brakes six times, including rear drums and front brake rotors. However, problem has returned, and the dealer can't determine the cause. When consumer is driving on wet pavement and applying the brakes, vehicle will slide across the road due to ABS brakes locking up.
