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.

Rear main seals are letting go, causing all pressure to be put on the front brakes. Consumers mom had the same problem with her 2000 Tracker. Once consumer purchased the 2001 year of the same vehicle, her father informed consuemr to have the system checked. Upon checking, consumer found out that the same failure her moms vehicle experienced was also showing signs on the 2001 version. Consumer would like for GM to recall the failing parts.
