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.

Express 8-cyl

Consumer was driving at 50 mph and the brakes started vibrating. The problem first started around 6-4-05, and has gradually gotten worse. The consumer took vehicle it to the dealership twice. There was nothing done to fix the vehicle because it was not covered under the warranty. The consumer contacted the manufacturer, they had him to make a second appointment with the dealership. When the consumer took it to dealer, they took the tires off, and inspected the brake pads and rotors. They told consumer that the metal had delaminated off the rotors. The brake pads were okay. They reported it to the manufacturer, who said it was not covered under warranty. The consumer felt it was a manufacturing defect. Consumer knew someone else with the same problem but, with a truck. There was a recall on the truck. There were no other known problems with the vehicle at this time.
