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.

I noticed about a 2wks after I purchased the car; I kept hearing what sounded like the brakes and informed the dealership of the problem. They informed me that because it was a new car that the brake dust had to settle. Anyway its been almost a year and I'm still having the same problem and now their say that alot of those type of cars are having the same problem and their looking into it. I request a recall, because they knew that those type of car had that problem all along. I purchased a brand new car.
