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.

I was traveling this past Tuesday, May 1st, and I notice a slight noise from the inside of my van when I had reached my destination. It happened when I applied my brakes but when I roll down my window I hadn't noticed any noise from the outside of the van. I was alone and did get out and I hadn't noticed anything in or around the front left tire. I had to travel another 1 and a half back home and by this time my car was making a horrible noise. I had a mechanic look at the car and informed me that the rotor was messed up and the brakes where metal to metal. I only have 29,000 miles on my van and he told me that this shouldn't be doing this until its due to a defect such as a bad caliper or the brakes where getting hung up. I called Toyota and they told me that they would correct this problem until I arrived and then they told me that this is normal for Toyota Sienna minivans. I am concerned that there is more to the problem because my brakes never squealed or squeaked and its only on the left side.
