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.

Consumer complained about a front end brake problem. Dealer stated brakes were repaired, and everything was fine. Later that day, while driving, there was a noise in the front. Consumer took vehicle to a midas shop, and was informed that the front brake calipers were corroded, and it was causing the rotors and pads to wear unevenly and prematurely.
