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.

Baja 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19,700 miles


Rusted brakes. The rear rotors are pitted and need to be exchanged, according to the dealer, after 22 months and 19,800 miles. No warranty, dealer sees this as normal wear. According to other authorized repair shop, brakes are fine, shoes still at 50 %, brakes do not need replacement. Never had a car with rust pitted rotors before, especially not with such low mileage and age.
