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.

A vibration could be felt in the front end steering components and through the steering wheel when applying the brakes. First reported 05/29/03 @ 7,900 miles. Rotors were turned, brake pads sanded (covered under warranty), tires balanced & rotated ( I paid for these repairs). Second complaint on 08/14/03 @ 11,747 miles. No work was done. Third report of the same problem reported on 02/04/04 @ 19,480 miles. Informed rotors were warped. Rotors were turned, brake pads replaced, tires were balanced & rotated. All of this work was not covered under warranty and I was charged for these repairs.
