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.

problem #2

I have had several occasions where the wheel lugs have snapped while the wheels were removed for tire replacement, rotation and replacement of brake pads and rotors. I have also had the brake caliper retainer bolts snap while the vehicle was in motion so that the rear brakes on the vehicle were next to inoperable as only a portion of the brake pad came in contact with the rotor. The dealer did not make any attempt to resolve or repair the brake rotors or pads under warranty when this happened. What made it more of an issue was the the local dealer didnt have these parts on hand and gave me the specs for the bolt to purchase from the local hardware store. These new bolts have held.

Tire pressure monitor indicated low pressure. Right rear tire needed air. Tire continued to slowly leak and the pressure monitor tripped again days later. Mentioned problem to dealership during service. Dealership found no problem with the tire and properly inflated all wheels. A few days later the tire pressure was low (tire pressure monitor tripped again). Bringing vehicle back to the dealer for possible replacement of tire. Probably a problem isolated to my specific car, but logging the incident in case there are more tires out there with similar problems.
