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.

TOOK IT TO THE DEALER , THEY MEMTIONED THAT THEY CAN HEAR WHY I BROUGHT IN MY CAR , I GOT CHARGE $70 JUST TO LOOK AT IT, ALL THEY DONE AS I'M TOLD WAS THAT THEY CLEANED DUST AND LUBED THE BRAKESHOE ON BACKSIDE WHERE IT RESTED ON THE BACKPLATE. AFTER A 1078 MILES IT CAME BACK. EVER SINCE I"VE BEEN TAKING THE DRUM APART, CLEANING IT AND SPRAYING IT WITH A SILACONE BASE LUBERACATE AND USING BEARING GREASE ON THE BRAKESHOE CONTACTS. IT LSAT ABOUT 7000 MILES BEFORE THE NOISE STARTS UP AGIAN. I BELEIVE THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE MATRIAL USED FOR MAKING THE BACKPLATE OR THE BACKPLATE NOT BEING INSULATED FOR VIBRATIONS.

Older buyer with limitless income stuff w/o money to fix has problem with brakes on 2010 Dodge Caliber. It's a shame how I got stuck with this vehicle not of my choosing but dealer's choice. Problem occurred within first year of ownership with 5 1/2 years left on payments!!! How fair is this?

I bought the car on 04/10/10 brand new with 4 miles on it. A couple days after driving it, I heard a noise when brakes applied. Thought it might be becasue it was new. It kept doing it and when I took it in the 1st time I was told they found a rock wedged in it that was causing it to make the noise. It kept doing it so I took it back. This time they told me they were putiing new rotors in. It now has 1000 miles on it and I have only had it 2 months. It is still in the shop so if this doesn't fix it, I will complain again.
