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.

First of all, we had the brakes done only 2 months after we bought the van. Then every now and again, the brakes would stick. Since it was under warranty they said it was not a big thing, they would take care of it... so they did...8 times! And that is within the past 3 and 1/2 years! Now it is sticking again and doesn't work too well when it rains. I have tried numerous times to contact the manufacturer but to no avail. My car dealer won't do a thing for me either. I don't know what to do and I think I am getting ripped off by mechanics who need the business, my warranty is up, and I am really *&^%'d already. Please, if anyone has a suggestion, I would appreciate it.
