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 contact stated the brakes lock up and have to be pumped to work properly. When the rear wheels were removed, the brakes fell apart. The front brake pads and shoes have been replaced twice. The rear brake pads, shoes, and drums have been replaced once. These components must be replaced every 20,000 miles. The dealership determined this is how the brakes were manufactured.
