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.

Brake pedal felt rough upon stepping on pedal (I have a little more than 30K miles on the vehicle) I do work on my own vehicles and I am very knowlegable when it come to basic repairs I inspected both roters on the front of the vehicle and found the driver side inner pad completely worn to the metal the outer pad still has approximately 1/4 inch before it hits the indicator obviously my caliper is sticking I have an appointment tomorrow im curious what tey will say.

2002 Ford Expedition: Right front brake(s) making grinding noise when driving and is exaggerated when braking. Called dealer to schedule service. Asked service advisor why wear indicator(s) did not work. Service advisor informed me that Ford has not installed brakes with wear indicators for years. I told the service advisor that it is unbelievable that a $30K vehicle would not have bps with wear indicators especially since my 1992 VW jetta has brake pads with wear indicators. I removed the rf tire to examine the brake pad(s) and discovered that the brake pad(s) do in fact have wear indicators however, the brake caliper is stuck which caused the inside brake pad to wear prematurely. This has scarred the rotor.
