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.

Consumer stated that brakes vibrated and made a lot of noise. She some times when applying brakes the noise got louder and louder. Took vehicle to the dealer, and was told that there was nothing wrong with the vehicle. This was going on this for 4 months.

At 45,000 miles brakes failed due to rivets digging into rotors. Brakes wear out quickly, but dealer says that they are normal.
