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.

Back brakes are not working properly. Stopping distance has increased. Also, there is a loud squeaking noise that happens when applying the brakes. Contacted dealer.

On several occassions we took vehical to the dealer and was told everything is fine just replace your brakes. After constently being sent away by the dealer, we eventually took the car to another mechanic and found out all kinds of problems: Blown head gasket, replace the brakes (again), calipers drifting to one side, etc. My warranty just expired, but I think it should still be honored since the problems could have been fixed a long time ago.
