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.

Since purchasing my 98 Toyota Camry 10/3/97, I have two separate incidents whereas my brakes did squeak & squeal when stopping. Brought my car into Toyota on two separate occiaisions and was told by dealership that they were aware of a brake problem, and would provide a temporary quick fix until the mfgr recalled the Camry's. I've had ft pads & machine rotors & rear brakes adjusted 2-3 times in 98. I've paid $300+ towards this service to my new car and there is still no resolution to this problem. Did advise dealership that I will by another car, but it will not be a Toyota Camry. I'll begin purchasing Honda products beginning in 99 and will not go back to Toyota after being a faithful customer for over 10+ years.
