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 taking foot off of brake pedal, brakes hang up and make a squealing sound, indicating the brakes are not releasing as they should. V.w. told us to replace brakes to solve problem, did so and did not solve problem, wrote V.w. a letter and absolutely no response or concern from V.w. concerned could have brake failure in emergency.
