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.

Brake rotors unatural wear. Rotors deteriorating on edges leaving only 1 inch of pad surface to engage rotor, in the middle of the rotors on my truck increasing stopping distance. Also excessive rust on anti-lock break system causing system failure warning light to engage. Estimate of $2000 to repair.

Emergency brake gave way on flat ground, and subsequently ran over driver's legs. Emergency brake goes to the floor. The rear brakes lock up. It was hard to shift into first gear and sometimes pops out of first gear.
