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 called regarding a 2002 Chevrolet S10 pickup truck. The contact stated that the brake rotors have been replaced four times due to corrosion. The rotors were first replaced at approximately 6,000 miles. The contact has the repair invoices. The dealer told the contact they would no longer replace the rotors free of charge because of the frequent use of salt on the roads in the contact's area, the corrosion was to be expected.

The consumer stated that the rotators were bad, pictures were taken and there was unusual flaking. The rotors were worn smooth and not pitted. There was excessive noise coming from the brakes. All of the rotors were replaced due to the pitting being so severe that it could not be used. The dealer said he had seen this before. There was excessive noise in the drive train and morning brake noise as if the parking brakes were sticking. The vehicle had been to the dealer for noise in the drive train and 4 wheel drive unit which was eventually blamed on aggressive tire tread.
