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.

This vehicle has been repaired twice for front brakes pulling hard to the left fixed twice and dropped of again for the third time on 12/08/01. I am very concerned with the safety of this vehicle and the faulty braking system: Rotors, pads replaced twice, hoses all have been replaced prior to 12/08/01.
