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.

We have been leasing the vehicle and brought the vehicle in four times because of grinding of brakes, and three times they have replaced them. The last time the brakes wore out completly, and only had them fix three months prior T that. We feel that it is a safety hazard to our lives and others and afraid to drive because it seems that three months bringing it back for brakes only 11500 miles on them, something is wrong somewhere.
