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.

After vehicle has gone in reverse and brakes are applied, and again when pulling forword and brake is applied, there is a "clanking noise" as if maybe a loose brake caliper. It has been taken to a dealership for repairs 3 times to no avail. The first time, I was told that I just needed to tighten my wheels. The second time the (rt) upper and lower control arms were replaced. The third time the left control arms were replaced as well as the brake pads. All this work is being done to a new truck and the mechanics don't even know what is wrong with it. They are simply replacing things that they think it might be. I-am very concerned and frustrated because I have a new truck that is constantly in the shop and I now have nothing to drive. Please help.
