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.

No warning of brake pads getting low. I took my truck to a mechanic because the front brakes were making a noise. He reported that my brake pads had worn completely away and had damaged the rotors to the point that they had to be replaced. The mechanic said that normally brake pads contained a squeaker device to let you know when the pads are getting low. My Ford factory installed brake pads did not have this.

Brakes fail when depressed, then grab at last second. Dealer performed a brake service consisting of grinding the metallic pads but problem is worse and brakes now groan upon stop.
