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.

Took car in for allignment and was informed that front outer tie rod ends which are supposed to be lifetime lubricated had failed. Had noticed some small problems with steering which is why I took it to dealer. Learned that they have had other cars with same problem. A steering defect is serious to me and I believe someone should look in to this and see how many cars like mine may have the same problem and you don't know about it unless you take it in for an allignment.
