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.

problem #1

Nov 011998


  • miles
The car has a pronounced 'shudder/vibration' at low speed (around 25mph). The problem intensifies when turning right, especially over uneven pavement. The rotors appear to be warped as they also vibrate under braking, causing the shudder to again intensify. The dealer states that this is a 'common' problem with Aurora's..?
