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.

My brakes on my 2009 Scion Xd started make noise at about 25,000 miles, brought to dealer. Was told that brakes go bad all the time at 25,000 miles.well that's a red flag to start with. Then I was told that I must ride my brakes. I only have one leg so that would be very hard to do. They pulled my brakes off and found that I still had about 5mm of pad and my rotors needed turning and I needed new pads. Well I still had pads left but the rotors still needed turning. So I think that there is something wrong with the rotors to fail that fast and I was told that this happens all the time. I had the work done at avondale Toyota 10005 w papago freeway avondale, 85323. It cost me $245.21 to fix something that wore out way to soon invoice # [xxx] maybe there should be a recall on this before someone gets killed.
