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.

2002 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

I purchased my 2002 Camry new [xxx]. after approximately 25,000 miles (4 Jan 03 was repair date), the front brakes began to vibrate and shake, causing some control problems when braking. I went to the dealer and the front rotors were resurfaced and new pads were installed. Now, at approximately 50,000 miles, the same problem developed. I was told by the dealer this has never happened before and that he blamed poor driving habits on the failure. Again, the front rotors were resurfaced and new pads were installed. Even though I had paperwork from the first repair, and I had purchased the extended warranty, this repair wasn't covered. After conducting some research at this website, I find that there is a problem with the front brakes, but Toyota is evidently not owning up to the problem. There is a Toyota service bulletin (00602), but I can't seem to get the dealer to find or admit to that bulletin.
