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.

Replaced brakes (front and rear) at 18000 miles. Will have to do it again at 27000 miles. Brakes are woefully undersized for weight of the vehicle. Rotors overheat and warp which makes stopping a bone shaking experience. Resurfacing rotors only provides temporary relief. Brake system should be redesigned an properly sized - current systems should be replaced immediately before someone dies.
