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.

Trailer hitch. Welds have cracks. Looks like the welds were never completed. First noticed flexing in the hitch and replaced it before anything happened. I'm sending links to a few pictures. Look along the welds on the round tube. The cracks appear as lines on the welds of the round tubes. Pictures of hitch....
