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.

Braking system malfuction. Extremley loud low toned grinding noise upon braking occurs at quick stops and when traveling above 30 mphr. Brakes were inspected nothing to be foiund wrong. 3 indictors lights light intermitiniatly while driving. Repair shop reset on 3 different occations, inspected brkes nd system nothing to be found wrong. Due to continued issues with indicator lights and noise I have had brakes and system rechecked and replaced 3 different times in the past 1.5 years. Currently stil having same issues with noise, lights and grinding.
