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.

I had my brakes looked at when I kept feeling severe pulsating in the steering wheel and pedal, they had to replace my rotors due to being warped but my brakes now still do not work right after being replaced 4 times they still vibrate severly and there are thousands of Dodge Intrepid owners who are experiencing the same problems. Thank you.

At about 20,000 miles I noticed a pulsing or shimmy when pressing the brakes. It appears that the front rotors have already warped, under normal use. My tires show no sign of unnecessary wear and have been rotated regularly. The dealer and Dodge are aware of the problem and say that this is normal and will not cover it under the warranty. If it is normal for rotars to wear every 20,000 miles than this will be the last Dodge or Chrysler product I will buy!.
