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.

problem #1

  • 56,430 miles
The cross member holding the engine came loose and dropped the engine to about 6 inches from the ground. Only 1 bolt was found. This was discovered while backing out of the driveway. It will require a floor jack to lift the engine so the bolt can be replaced and then towed to a shop for inspection of further possible damage.
