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.

When we replace the brakes in 2005 my rotors where warped and the rear passenger caliper would not retract. After an hour we were able to get it to finally retract to finish the brake job. 7.5 years later my rotors warped again, and the caliper would not retract but the shop I took it too recommended replacing the caliper.
