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.

Dodge Nitro 2008 back braking system - little to no notice back brakes have grinded down to the rotor on my Nitro - there are several recalls for 2010 2009 2007 on braking issues but non on 2008 I have had my Nitro two years don't drive it much have 25646 miles total it appear that the brakes are braking even when not in use to cause them to wear out so uneven. Front brakes are fine and have no issues. Called Chrysler called carmax where my car was purchased in or to check out the issue I have to pay for an inspection even though I have an extend warranty brake check or inspection is not covered. Even though I explain there might be some issues with the braking system.
