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.

: the contact stated after the vehicle had 2,000 miles the brakes began to grab and would not stop at the intended stopping point. The vehicle has been to the dealership multiple times, the rear drums, cylinder pistons, pads, and shoes have been replaced, but the problem persists. The manufacturer suggested the vehicle be taken back to the dealership for further repairs.

problem #1

Dec 292005

Colorado 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Noticed after driving on freeway for a while that small vibration in steering wheel occurred with low cabin rumble. First time the vibration was enough to make me think I had a tire coming apart. What was actually happening is my front brakes had applied themselves slightly and were getting very hot. Upon braking steering wheel shook back and forth very hard. Has been going on since vehicle was new. Is 13 months old now. Dealer has replaced master cylinder, power brake booster, both rotors, brake shoes. Has made no difference, everytime I drive any distance on the freeway the brakes get very hot. I cannot hold my hand on either front wheel but a few seconds. Rotors steam and hiss if I squirt water on them. Is currently in the dealer the fourth time and they don't know what is going on. I get lots of black powder on my wheels after driving on freeway 60 miles.
