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.

Sentra 4-cyl

I had purchased my vehicle in December 2010. When I had purchased it, it seemed to have a barring problem, or a brake problem. It kept shaking, and making a thump-sound. It kept pulling, when I stepped on the brakes. About March 2011, I was driving on the highway, and all of a sudden, my car was shaking so much, that I had to pull over. It blew my entire rim and tire off. I got a tow truck and brought it to my mechanic, had to purchase a new tire and rim. About a couple months later, I noticed the pulling in the brakes again, it was getting worse, so I brought it back to my mechanic, and he checked out the whole car. He noticed that their was braking fluid leaking, and that it needs new brake pads. I had my car for 7 months, and all of a sudden I need new brake pads. He said it shouldn't of passed the safety. My dad and his lawyer looked at the safety and E tested papers, and it looks like it was forged, so it probably wasn't a proper safety. I am planning to give the car back, as it does not seem to be a proper safety.
