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.

Early brake wear - I bought a 2008 Chrysler T&C in December 2010 with approximately 26,500 miles. The service history indicates that it had the brakes replaced when it was only a year old and had 11,996 miles. We have since had to replace the front pads at 27,000 miles and at 28,500 we are now having to replace the rear brake pads which are wearing unevenly and all four rotors.
