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.

2005 Pontiac Sunfire with 27,000 miles. Rear brake retaining spring broke while driving. Broken parts fell into the drum causing noise and excessive heating of the drum. Had to pay for the part and fix it after waiting three days to get the part from the dealer. Old part is available.
