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.

We were pulling in to the Kroger parking lot when the right front wheel seized. We called AAA (thank God for them!) and had the car towed home. We thought perhaps it was the wheel bearing. On taking off the wheel, my husband, who is a mechanic, found the brake pad broken in two pieces, with one piece wedged between the caliper and the rotor. New pads, springs and kit fixed the problem.

HOWEVER: If this had occurred on the freeway, traveling at 70 MPH, it may have caused a ROLLOVER and KILLED both of us! ALSO see SECOND COMPLAINT! -- fuel line rupture.
