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.

Wheel hop or axle tramp caused the rear to lose traction and the stability track and traction control failed to correct the problem. The axle tramp is a severe banging of the rear when there throttle is applied to the car. The rear spun and caused the car to hit a guard wall.
