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 reported to service manager-zeek, sheehy Nissan annapolis, that the car has progressively gotten worse upon braking, to the point of jerking to a stop, and even sliding at low speeds below 40mph. No problem, they replaced front brake shoes, and turned rotors. I noticed lately that when I brake, I hear this dry sound coming from the right front wheel. I intend to report it along with the engine belt squeaking sounds this weekend.

Brakes lock up at 20-35 mph under normal breaking conditions causing loss of control. Constant whine from front left side. Front left rotor turned once due to pulsating pedal. Pulsating has returned along with "shimmy" in steering at various speeds. Front tires seem to be wearing at accelerated rate. Appt # 2 set with dealer.
