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.

3rd time with warped OEM rotor. This time I changed from OEM to Power Slot. I'll let you know how long these last. Some one told me that there is a problem with the rotors not getting enough cooling air due to how aero dynamic the cars have become, yea right!!!
