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.

2008 Mercury Mariner. Consumer states safety issues with rotors the consumer took the vehicle to a mechanic to have the vehicle inspected. The mechanic stated the rotors for the front disc brakes were worn, pitted and rusted and needed to be replaced. It was verified when it was discovered that the brake pedal pulsed at speeds of 30 or 40 mph. The consumer then took the vehicle to the dealer who then asserted that the mechanic was wrong and that all vehicles have rust on their rotors. The consumer then took the vehicle back to his mechanic because of a continued pedal pulsation beginning at 30- 40 mph. The consumer then went to another dealership, who did indeed agree that the front rotors were rusted, pitted and unsafe. Also the rear drums were cracked and needed to be replaced. The ABS was inoperative due to the tone rings had fallen off.
