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.

Replaced left front wheel bearing Aug 2005 (50500 mi) then in Dec 2006 (73600 mi) had to replace right one. Suspect those failures have been factor in rotors needing to be turned.

Wheel bearing. The wheel bearing caused the tire to wear to the point that it was getting ready to blow out.
