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.

Sebring 6-cyl

In Aug 2003 I had my brakes done, I was planning on just changing the pads and turning the rotors but I was told that they were below min specs and had to be replaced. So I replaced them now in April 2004 I had my car in for it's regular oil change and had them do a brake inspection because my car was shaking when I applied the brakes. I was told again that all 4 rotors were below min spec and had to be replaced and they had deep groves in them. I'm not a crazy driver I have not had any speeding ticket or accidents. Ever. I was not told what could be causing these groves or why I will have to replace my rotors for the 2nd time with a car that has only 42K miles on it. I would like to know what is causing these deep groves and how to correct this problem. I have not had them fixed yet as I can't afford it.

When the brakes were applied brake pedal pulsated. Vehicle was serviced, and the technician determined that brake rotors needed to be replaced. The vehicle had its third repair in the last seven months.
