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.

After 1 year of driving NEW vehical and ironically during routine NYS inspection, I was told the rear breaks were worn and need to be replanced. The roters were ok though. I couldn't believe this after 1 year! They dealership would not pass the vehicle for inspection until brakes (and get this 2 tires) were replaced. I contacted Pontiac Cust service and was told the same story the dealership had given. "The brakes are no longer made of the harder aspestos material and wear faster". My beef? Am I going to have to count on new brakes every year? Regarding the tires- they were supposedly worn due to my failure to have them rotated 6 months prior.
