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.

I am not sure exactly how to describe this problem but I am sure that this is not normal. I don't know if has anything to do with the brakes or not, but I had them done in November. I found out the hard way that unless you ask for something other than the cheapest crappy brake pads, that's all you get and they squeak. Anyway, other than that, they work fine. However, I've noticed that lately when I put my car in reverse, it's not smooth. It's kind of like a clicking noise and feel/hear it when I apply the brakes. Also, when I put my car in park, the same thing happens. Can anyone tell me what might be wrong with my car? Thanks.
