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.

This is a one owner truck. Took to dealer for repairs, went back and forth 7-8 times repairs to this day not fixed. All brakes calipers rotors pads hoses drums replaced. As of this posting 10-01-2015, I just took the truck back for the last time. On the way to the dealer the brakes very extremely bad terrible jerking of the of the steering wheel and truck jumping up and down violently. On the way back home the truck had only slight hopping up and down and surging from the front rotors being burned in spots. This has been gong on now for 2 to 3 months and still not fixed. I am at a loss as to what is causing the problem. The pads and rotors and calipers have been replaced 3 times. No abs light has ever come on. Repairs started in July around the 21st 2015

I also have spent over $2000 to repair ac, and of today still not working, freon leak. I think from the Evaporator. all ac components have been replaced at least twice before.

The fuel pump has been replaced at least 4 times since 45000 miles.

nitsa should get involved in this problem as it is a safety problem and should not be ignored by them.
