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.

Brakes are one of the most important items on any movable object that has the potential to cause severe damage to property , life and limb. To view this and other brake conditions as a passing problem; what I mean is that I was treated like a person who would forget or give up if they prolong the solution (if they have to pay)

or they try to push the blame for the condition on me; saying the truck was not loaded properly.

I would not except their explanation and they finally agreed to replace the brake rotors.

Solving the current problem but not solving this recurring problems which is the oveworking of the pads causing heat to build up and warp the rotors. This in turn causes the brakes to become

less effective in stopping this truck... I believe a solution is to make rotors that are drilled and slotted to dissipate heat. I am currently looking for these but they are not produced for duel rear wheel trucks like mine. P. S. I had this truck weighed by a certified person and it was determined to be under the g. v. w. 1500 pounds under.
