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.

2001 Chevrolet Camaro Owner Comments

I and many other other new Camaro owners have been having problems with brake pulsation, General Motors has a tsb out on the pulsation problem but fails to do a recall. It's very dangerous I feel for myself and other Camaro owners.I don't want to have to keep bringing my car in for service if the brake components are unreliable for these F body cars.

While in normal driving conditions, if not better than average conditions including long trips, every 3000 miles or so, the front rotors warp from the heat generated over short periods of time with full amounts of brake pad. Many mechanics and service managers admitt to this problem. The problem is described to me as due to the rotors being too thin and the pads having too much metal makeup. An "engineering problem" as it was unofficially refered to. The rotors are not thick enough, and/or not enough air to cool the components. Recomendations from both independent ase mechanics as well as GM dealership employees (unofficially) was to purchase either slotted "racing" rotors or try ceramic non-metal pads from other sources. This has apparently gone on since 1998 on both firebirds and Camaros.
