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.

Heard grinding noise when braking at 58K. Had it checked out and right rear pads worn through. Need new rotor. Left rear pads not as worn but very close to same scenario. Front pads were 50% good.

The right front tire keeps losing air pressure. Vehicle has been to the dealer on three separate occasions. Dealer replaced the right front tire twice, and replaced the air pressure three times. But, problem recurred. The right wheel frame squeakes when turning at 10 mph. Rotors and pads and shoes and wheel bearings cracked.
