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 purchased my 2003 Intrepid in December 2003 with 20,000 the spring of 2004 I had to replace the front rotors and discs it is now August 2004 and the same problem is occurring starting with squeaking and pulsation followed by grinding. The vehicle now has 40,000 miles on it and I am once again replacing rotors and discs. I do not have the 1st pair of rotors and discs that were replaced however I will keep this set. Another problem I have started noticing is when shifting the car into drive it occassionally does not respond and I have to place the vehicle in park a couple of times before drive will engage.

The vehicle was taken to a mechanic for an oil change. The mechanic informed the consumer that the brake pads and rotors were worn out and needed to be replaced. The consumer drove the vehicle to a dealer for inspection. The dealer informed the consumer that the rotors needed to be replaced due to worn out parts. The consumer found the front brake rotor rusted and pitted. The vehicle had less than 10K miles when the vehicle was purchase.
