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 2006 Dodge Magnum. The contact heard a loud squeaking noise from the brake system and when attempting to decelerate when the vehicle make a loud grinding noise and shake excessively. The failure was similar to recall 06V149000 (service brakes, hydraulic). The brake system did not help to idle the vehicle. A private mechanic replaced the front and rear brake pads and he noticed that there was a brake hose leak and performed the repairs; however, the failure continued. The current mileage was 97,000 and the failure mileage was 80,000.
