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.

2011 Dodge Caliber Owner Comments

Caliber 4-cyl

Squealing brakes from rear brakes started after 9,000 miles. Drove it to dealership and they stated it was not a major issue and was common. Several days later the problem continued to occur and took it to a different dealership and the issue was loud squealing when stopping. They inspected the brakes and could not resolve the problem and had no fix for it. My car now has 11,800 miles and the issue still has not changed. People can hear this from several feet away since it is not a quiet sound. It is getting to a point that if they cannot resolve the issue, I will get rid of the car.
