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.

It makes this loud a$$ noise when I stop at intersections. I think it is coming from the rear but unsure. It sounds like a honing noise. Like a school bus but not like some type of noise it should make. I have replaced the brakes all around once. Replaced a caliper cause I thought it might had been sticking but not that. This is getting costly. the caliper was 100 so far. All new pads and rotors. 160 on rotors and 120 on pads. The front I could under stand from wear and tear. I would think it would take away this noise after all new product. I even went all out and bought ceramic brakes and the top of the line rotors and pads. Still nothing. Adjusted the emergency brakes. Still nothing. Bleed the brakes. Still nothing. WTF???
