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.

My wife was driving the car when passers by motioned to her that the car was on fire at the driver side wheel. The pads had slipped out of the caliper causing the caliper to rub against the rotor which in turn caused the caliper to rupture spewing brake fluid on the rotors . This caused a small fire. Luckily noone was hurt. The breaks were not worn at the time or showing any signs of failure. It just happened suddenly.
