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.

My 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71 has rear drum brakes. Due to shimmy when breaking in April 2008, we replaced rear brakes pads. When replacing them, it was discovered that they were originally installed wrong. They were then put together correctly and have had serious issues ever since. I have replaced brake pads and drums twice in the past year and a half. And still, it needs to be done again. I have had it to two different shops. The brakes seem to be consistently hot causing the shoes to fall apart.
