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 owns a 2009 Ford Taurus. The contact was traveling 30 mph when the brakes were applied in order to make a right turn; however, the vehicle spun around. The contact was able to drive the vehicle, but the rear driver side wheel was dragging. When the contact took the vehicle to a mechanic, he stated that the calipers were frozen and failed to release. The mechanic had to replace the calipers and rotors on the vehicle. The failure and current mileages were 46000. Updated 01/20/11 updated 04/04/11
