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 car stutters when braking, the dealer informed me this was not uncommon and is related to the ABS system and is not a safety hazard. I have seen other comments on this web site that causes me concern?

I stated their was a rubbing type noise in right/left front wheel when turning. The result was nothing. The second occurrence was August 13, 2008 with the same problem. The third time day Chrysler resurfaced front and rear rotors. The subsided but occurred again. The brakes drag and pulsate when stopping. I continue to have noisy front wheels while driving forward. When backing the automobile up the front brake pads are not stationary meaning they should not move in brake calipers. The steering knocks when turning. I have complained to the Chrysler corporation.

The contact owns a 2008 Chrysler 300. While driving 60 mph downhill, the vehicle began vibrating and shaking severely when the brake pedal was depressed. The steering wheel also shook. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they replaced the rotor. The failure recurred and the rotor was replaced once again. The manufacturer stated that the failure was caused by how the contact was stopping the vehicle. The failure recurred and the dealer changed the brake pad and rotor again, but the failure persists. The failure mileage was 12,000.
