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.

Same as above: my brakes would be really touchy whenever it was rainy, foggy, humid, etc. Even going from parked to just starting out the first time I'd hit the brakes, they grabbed really hard. I learned to work with it until someone totaled my truck. Would have liked to have found out if water in the wheel well was the problem. Miss my truck in spite of it's problems!

Water leaks into wheel wells causing breaks to become extremely sensitive at low speeds. Many mechanics have stated this is a known problem but besides sealing the wheel wells there is not much you can do about it

Brakes replaced, rotors new, abs not working properly. just getting a run around. the wire for the ABS was replaced and the brakes still don't work the way they are supposed to. Feels like the brakes are sticking when I back out of the driveway.
