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.

The brakes gave me no warning that they were bad until I could feel metal grinding metal. The mechanic said the rotors had to be replaced as well as the pads. he quoted me 275 dollars. He then called me and told me he had to charge me an extra 200 dollars because, "some of these Hondas the rotors are put on there funny and it takes a lot more work to get them off and on". What the heck???? Why would Honda do this? Or is my mechanic cheating me?
