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 front brake rotors have warped for the second time causing excessive front end vibration when braking. The steering wheel oscillates to the extent that braking from highway speeds is unstable. I had to resurface both front rotors at 8500 and 22000 miles to remove run out. This is unacceptable for a $40K vehicle that has only seen normal use and is regularly maintained.

When driving at 35 to 40 mph or more and brakes are applied a very strong vibration will shake the hole vehicle even at curves. This represents a strong safety hazard. This vibration is not normal, dealer replaced front disk pads and repaired the disks but considering the low millage its hard to belive pads where worn out. I think something is not wright. I made some research in this sites and found other customers with same or similar situation with the Toyota pick up V8 (Tundra) -.
