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.

The vehicle has been in over the last 8-9 months for a metal to metal sound in the secondary braking system. Dealer said it was a known problem, and there was nothing that could be done about it. The calipers on the secondary braking system that operatesd the emergency parking brake in the rear. If the pads dislodged it would cause the wheels to lock up. The vehicle has been into the service department around 10-15 times. Consumer's father, steve herman, has filed this complaint on behalf of the owner who was away at college.
