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.

While applying the brakes vehicle would jerk forward. A loud noise was heard coming from the front. Consumer drove the vehicle to the dealer for inspection, and mechanic replaced the brake pads, and both frontal rotors because they wore out prematurely. Consumer informed the mechanic brakes pads were replaced two to three months ago, and this problem occurred more than once.
