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.

The front-passenger side brake pads are wearing unevenly. The outside brake pad has worn down to the squealer while the inside brake pad shows little wear. I have contacted the Oldsmobile representative concerning this problem and he has opened a case report. The first time this happen at 16000-17000 miles it was covered under warranty. The solution at that time was to rebuild the caliper, replace the pads and turn the rotors. While talking to the dealer service representative, I have learned this is currently an ongoing problem that is affecting other models as well, which has GM engineers searching for answers.
