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 lining rusted, causing the brakes to fail. Consumer had the vehicle towed to a repair shop for diagnosis of the problem. Also, consumer contacted the manufacturer, who insisted there was not much they could do, and consumer should take the vehicle to a Chevrolet dealership. Consumer was not willing to pay for a brake inspection.
