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've had the brakes worked on every 10K-12K miles, and have paid so many times to have the pads/rotors repaired/replaced or "cleaned/turned" that I've reached the point where I consider brake work on my ST a "regular maintenance" item like changing the oil or checking tire pressure. Too frustrating.

Squealing brakes for several months. Dealer kept saying it was the new material being used for the brakes. They did not squeal when we got it... so why after they fix it. we had them fixed no fewer that 3 times!
