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.

Someone needs to drive this vehicle, it is absolutely unsafe. The front end and steering shakes violently when under hard braking. I live in a mountain area that requires accurate handling/braking, etc. This vehicle is dangerous to operate and is being ignored by the dealer and now the manufacturer. I believe this problem exist in a large number of vehicles and has been undetected/mis-diagnosed or otherwise non-repaired. I welcome your expert opinion and will make the vehicle available for your inspection.

Have a serious vibration/shaking in the front end during hard braking, most noticeably during downhill braking at speeds of approximately 65 miles per hour. Vehicle becomes difficult to control due to vibration throughout passenger compartment. Front and rear rotors have been serviced repeatedly to no avail and front disk pads have been replaced. New tires and front end allignment have not improved the situation whatsoever. Steering wheel shakes violently with vibration throughout cabin.
