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 contact owns a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta sportwagen. While driving approximately 30 mph, the brakes made a grinding noise and an odor when the brake pedal was depressed. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that the rear passenger side caliper failed and was rubbing metal to metal. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 58,000.
