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.

Both rear brake discs were grooved after 4000 miles of use. Dealership turned rotors. Problems still existed with noise. Took to second dealer and they turned discs (second turning) diagnosis: Warped discs. My conscern is the safety of the rear brakes new, as well as after the remedy (turning). Customer service rep. From first dealer stated that there have been many complaints about noise, but it is perfectly safe.
