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.

Caliper bolts were not properly put into the brakes from the factory. They were not bolted in all the way, causing one to be sheared off completely and the other one bent into an "S" shape. Dealership stated that brakes are under a 13,000 mile warranty. My car has 16,000 miles, dealership did not cover under warranty. Car was taken & repaired at automotive repair shop.
