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.

Front wheel bearings on 2004-2005 Buick Rendezvous fail at 50-60,000 miles. This is a common repair item if you talk with auto repair shops and dealers. One local repair shop repaired 6 vehicles the same week - all with front wheel bearing failure.

Both front wheel bearings had to be replaced with only 52,000 miles on the vehicle. This component failure was extremely premature and indicates a defect in the wheel bearings. Another compliant to NHTSA listed the same problem on a vehicle with only 43,000 miles.

I had to have both front wheel bearings replaced at 43,000 miles. I did extensive research and have found this to be a common problem with this vehicle. It seems unreasonable to have to spend almost $800 to replace bearings which should last at least 100,000 miles.
