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 brought our car in 4/2002. Have had problems with brakes. We are currently on our third set of pads and our second set of rotors. Squeeking has been a problem along with grinding and for some reason when the brakes are depressed the steering wheel shakes. We had a mechanic look at the brakes during the last pad change and he noticed that there was a tear in the calliper system. I just thought I was the only one that was having these problems until I check it out.
