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 took the vehicle to a mechanic for repair. The mechanic replaced the front rotors and brake pads. The failure mileage was 11,540 and current mileage was 20,881.

Contact states vehicle vibrates at high speeds. The service dealer stated it was a brake problem; the rotors were warped not and they were not covered under the warranty. The rotors were replaced by an independent service shop. In warmer weather the vibration became worse.
