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 seem to have a problem with the ABS light when it is off my breaks make a horrid noise so of course i ran out and got new breaks old ones weren't too bad but at least i know they are ok. That was fine for about 1 week then it rained. I have the same weather issue as most of you do with the lights but the breaks seem to be ok in colder and wet weather the only time they act up is when it is warm and dry. Not only do they make noise it is very difficult to slow the vehicle down and the break peddle actually pushes back. I have had the lines bleed. It is raining again now and i have not had one problem with them. Any ideas i might try? thanks
