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.

I have a 2004 Pontiac Aztek and I have this noise coming from my rear brakes as well. I have 136, 000 miles on my vehicle. It occurred when I had new brakes and rotors installed. I took the vehicle back and they still made that cracking sound. The more they take the brakes off the louder it gets. I then took the car to two separate places and they are dumbfounded as to what is causing this problem. It is embarrassing and annoying. I was told to try and buy more expensive parts but that is not guaranteed to stop this problem. If there are any other ideas on solving this problem, I would love to hear them.
