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.

A national distributor of replacement automobile parts provided the incorrect size front brake rotors for a 2005 Volvo xc-90. A owens cross road, al auto repair shop that installed these front brake rotors blamed the national distributor's catalog error for smaller (approximately 0.50 inch) front brake rotors which are sold as an exact replacement for the original Volvo rotors. The front brake pads actually exceeded the front rotors outer diameter and should have been obvious to any responsible auto mechanic. The national distributors catalog error is recklessly endangering people all over the United States. The name of the national distributor is unknown but certainly could be obtained from the owens cross road auto repair service. The national distributor should be fined and required to notify every auto repair shop which they have supplied with the incorrect size front rotors.
