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.

Grand Am

When driving at any speed and applying the brakes, brakes squeak and there is some knocking noise coming from the brakes. Consumer states that brakes talk to her, and go straight to the floorboard. Also, when consumer is backing out and turning to the right there is a popping noise coming from the steering.
