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.

Scraping and pulsing noticed under braking. Upon inspection large(dollar bill size) sections were missing from the surface of the brake rotor. Appeared as though it had rusted from the inside out. Mechanic stated he had seen this before on this type of vehicle. Both rotors and all pads needed to be replaced.
