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.

New jeep, only about a year old. The breaks were squealing loud. Took to dealership. They weren't covered under warranty. I replaced them myself and they lasted a couple of years. Since I've owned it, I have replaced the pads and shoes 6 times. The rotors and drums twice. Even with new brakes and hardware, there is a little squeal. I tried ceramic brakes once, but that didn't help and I always use the brake grease. It helps, but after a few months, the squeal comes back.
