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 stated about every 6,000-7,000 miles, when the pressure is applied to the brake, the front end shakes badly. The first three times the vehicle was taken to the dealership where the brake pads were resurfaced. The last time the front brake pads and rotors were replaced. The problem has recurred.
