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.

LOUD SQUEEKS NOISE ON BRAKES-NOT WORKING PROPERLY-VERY LOUD NOISE+ LARGE AMOUNT OF BRAKE DUST ON WHEELS-THEY TRIED TO TELL ME THAT IT WAS WORKING TO EXPECIFICATIONS AND AFTER 3 OR 4 TIMES, THEY FINALLY REPLACED THE BRAKE PADS AND ROTORS. PROBLEMS ARE GONE NOW.... AFTER SEVERAL TIMES TAKING THE VEHICLE TO THE DEALER AND INSPECTED BY QUALITY CONTROL.
