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.

Whenever I apply my brakes they sometimes make a horrible knocking sound. I had the brakes replaced, stopped it for a little while, then it came back. Although mechanics can hear it, they cannot figure out why it happens. Most told me that "cars sometimes make strange noises". It is not a strange noise, it is horrible. People riding in my car can hear it. I hate to even apply my brake, it makes me feel that I am doing something wrong.
