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.

The contact owns a 2006 Buick Lucerne. The tie rods in the vehicle were replaced twice within a three year period. During the first failure, the vehicle began vibrating and shaking whenever the brake pedal was depressed. She took the vehicle to the dealer and they replaced the tie rods on both sides of the vehicle. The failure recurred after 18 months. She took the vehicle back to the dealer and they tightened and greased the tie rods. This repaired the failure for six months until it occurred again while driving 10 mph. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer and they replaced the tie rods again. The contact believes that the tie rods were a manufacturer defect and they should be responsible. The failure mileage was 3,200 and current mileage was 32,000. Updated 2/2/09 updated 02/04/09.
