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.

I just had the brake pads and rotors replaced again a week ago at 46,500 miles. What makes it so bad is that I had no grinding noise, no warning at all! I just took it to a trustworthy place to have my oil changed and they told me what needed replacing. On old cars, I use to have a squealing sound when braking but I had no clue at all! Has anyone had this to happen to them?
