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.

Having trouble with the braking system. When trying to come to a stop real fast there is a grinding noise coming from the front brakes. The brakes work fine when coming to a slower stop. I took vehicle to james rivard Pontiac in tampa, Florida. This was looked at by dealer but dealer was not helpful at all concerning issue due to the fact the car was bought used and not from them. This is still under factory warranty 2005 with 34000 miles, I also purchased the extended warranty when I bought the vehicle of the issue and possibly could be a brake caliper issue. This is very unfair to consumer and a safety issue as well. This should be on high priority to be looked at.
