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.

The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Charger. When driving at various speeds, there was a loud noise in the front of the vehicle. The mechanic stated that they couldn't hear any noise and that the brake pads were not defective. A second diagnosis was obtained from another mechanic who stated that the front brake rotors were warped and the tie rods needed to be replaced. An authorized dealer replaced the tie rods. The contact is concerned that a new vehicle has experienced multiple failures. Since the vehicle was repaired the failure has not recurred. The failure mileage was 12,000 and the current mileage was 37,000.

The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Charger. When the brake pedal was depressed at 70 mph, the steering wheel shook and the brake pedal shuttered. The dealer shaved and turned the rotors because they were warped. The failure recurred after 50 miles. The dealer was unable to repair the failure. The contact installed aftermarket brake pads and rotors, as well as new tires on the vehicle; yet, the failure continued. The failure mileage was 500 and current mileage was 27,926.

I have had my car for 4 months now and have already had the rotors cut and the pads replaced. The squealing was more than a nuisance and the rotors would overheat and warp. I had this work done at 8200 miles. I now have 9800 miles and the pads are already making noise and the rotors overheat after semi hard braking.

Rear brakes on 2007 Dodge Charger (17144 mile, mainly hwy) grooved consistently from top to bottom. Dealer checked and the only explanation they would give me was that I live on a gravel road and that rocks are causing this. Apparently if you live or are going to drive on a gravel road you can't own a Charger. Both the dealer and Chrysler customer service turned this down as a warranty item. Dealer stated rotors needed to be turned but without giving me a solution as to preventing this problem in the future. The grooves in the rotor are about 1/8 of an inch. This would take about 40 rocks perfectly lined up on each of the rear brakes. Impossible. I am be given the run around and would appreciate any assistance possible.
