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.

I had been hearing a noise in the rear of my car but the dealer kept saying they could not hear it. While driving in town my brakes locked up and I had to have it towed to the dealer. The dealer said that I had been driving with my park brake on and that voided my warranty. I had never used the parking brake. I had to pay for the brake work and new drums. Since then I've had the brakes re-done twice. This should not need to be done so often, should it?
