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.

When driving a noise was heard coming from the front end. Each time I mention the noise to the dealership during routine maintenance on 12/30/04 and1/7/04, I was told that the brakes made noise on the PT CRUISER. On 4/6/004 the auto was taken to the dealership where it was determined that the rotors needed to be replace. The charge was $527.47. After the rotors were replace the nois continued. The vehicle was returned a second time for service on 6/15/04.
