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 owns a 2002 Chevrolet Suburban 1500. The contact stated that while driving 20 mph she attempted to brake at an intersection and heard a cranking noise before the brakes failed. The vehicle was towed to a dealer who diagnose that there was rust damage on the brake lines. As a result, front break lines needed to be replaced. Three months later the rear brakes failed. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer who stated that the rust damage was extensive. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 177,000 and the current mileage was 179,000.
