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.

At speeds in excess of 50 mph, when brakes are applied the car/steering wheel vibrate and pulsate. Dealer said that it was a warped disc caused by the way the car is driven and only an annoyance. Car has less than 12K miles and is 14 months old.
