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.

Not sure how to report that this is the second time that I have to replace the brakes on this car. The Front Brakes have been changed once and the rear TWICE!!! Now, the Engineers at Chrysler thought it was a good idea to reduce the thickness of the disks to the minimum so that they can reduce weight (or so they say!) The result is that these cheapo brake systems wear out in no time and the cost of replacement is tremendous. Again, my dealer told me that it was 'normal'. A lot of argument later he agreed that it was somewhat "unusual" and agreed that it was warranty-able.

PS: I am currently on my third set in the front and... they are almost at the point of replacement.
