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.

While driving, the front of the vehicle started to vibrate. This was caused by front wheel bearing assembly failure. The part was replaced. The driver's side was the partial failure and the passenger's side was near catastrophic failure and may have resulted in the wheel locking up after continued use.
