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.

My sisters has the very same car with less miles. She had the same problem with calipers two weeks after I did.

This condition could have caused the brakes to lock up creating a very serious situation.

Most of my driving is on the freeway so the brakes are not overused.

I feel this is a defect and other drivers of the 2000 Alero should beware!
