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.

In a parking lot getting ready to pull onto a major highway brakes failed, and vehicle slid into the highway. Contacted dealer who couldn't find anything wrong. Let sister drive it, and she heard grinding noise. Also could feel it under the pedal. Had the vehicle serviced, and they replaced the front brake pads, but problem continued.
