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.

I have a 2001 Nissan Frontier that the right inner pad is worn to the sensor. The disc pad is wearing at noticeable angle from leading edge to trailing edge. The other pads are wearing normally. The truck also has a severe brake pull to the right. The pull is worse when hot. The car is undriveable at this time. The car will swith lanes when the brakes are applied. As an ase certified auto technician I believe the cause is the use of phenolic caliper pistons. Phenolic pistons are known to cause brake pulls, locked up brakes and uneven pad wear.

This is one of two 2001 Frontiers I own. Both have had premature wear on the passenger side inside front brake pad. All other pads were fine on both trucks. It sems the pad bcomes lodged in the caliper and does not retract when the brake is released.
