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.

Jimmy 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


The consumer purchased her vehicle in 2001 and has already had to replace the rear brakes. The dealer had to replace the entire braking system because the brakes pads were worn. The consumer was told to bring the vehicle back in about 3000 miles for a recheck. In Sept. 2004 she took the vehicle into Firestone for an oil change. They checked the brakes and told the consumer that everything was rusted and needed to be replaced. The rear brakes were replaced in March 2005.
