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.

The front left brake caliper froze in the braking position, making it near impossible to drive anywhere. Had to pull into a gas station to remove the caliper and drive into town without brakes.

One of the pins that the caliper slides on froze up a few months before this and I believe the issue came from that.

If you're relatively good at fixing things yourself, just buy the brake caliper (there's probably a core charge so bring your bad one) and do it yourself, just remember to bleed the brakes after.
