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.

Vehicle shimmies when you apply the brakes at speeds 45 mph. During heavy braking vehicle is hard to control as the steering wheel shakes heavily. Vehicle has been in the garage 3 times for problem. 1st garage visit grooves were present in the rotor 2nd visit rotors were turned and 3rd visit rotors were turned again. Problem is still occurring.... this problem poses a serious hazard.
