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.

Pontiac Sunfire 2003. Once it turned 4 yrs old, lots of brake problems. Replaced front rotors twice, there was often loud squeaking and squealing and/or shaking. In my opinion, it was mainly due to poor repair job; I also use cheapest replacement parts.

Rear brakes loud squeaking - it will go away once you replace BOTH parking brake cables on back. Then completely avoid using the parking brake.
