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 brakes have a high pitched squeal either in reverse or forward for the first mile of driving, but on occasion it has happened while driving for a while to. I took to the dealership and they said there is nothing they can do because they are steel brakes with metal on metal and it is normal. They said it replaces the abestoes brakes. I know other people with new cars and do not have this issue.

Driving vehicle to investigate symptoms and during regular casual driving the car stalled, hydraulic brakes went and steering locked while slowing through a school zone. I'm a certified tech with H-D, kawasaki, BMW, and have never had a service manager deny a request that involved serious systems like this until today. That is why I'm filing this complaint on your site, I was told by the S.M. that they couldn't get my 29 day old 200 in before next week Monday! this is not a safe car, anyone reading this please do not buy this car!!!! mdm.

When slowing down almost to a stop, the vehicle downshifts hard. It cause a shutter or jerk and you can feel even in the brakes. Feels awful and cannot be normal. Also, when accelerating, the vehicle pulls hard to the right.
