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.

While driving could step on the brake pedal but felt pedal pulsating, and extended stopping distance. Problem caused by warped rotors, which were replaced, and the new rotors became warped as well.

Front and rear brake rotors are excessively warping which is causing severe shaking in the steering wheel.

My brake "dummy light" came on so I took it into a Chrysler service department to have it checked out. The service manager told me it would cost $450 to have the rotors replaced. My fairly new car only has 27,300 miles on it and should not need this done so early. After some investigation, I found out that this was a common problem with this model/make of car. I was told that Chrysler has told their service departments that rotors need to be replaced, not turned. But since, they feel they should be replaced so early, it should be at the manufacturer's expense.
