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.

The contact received NHTSA recall campaign 05V379000 concerning the anti lock brakes. The vehicle is currently at the dealership getting repaired. The dealership states the hub needs to be replaced. Since the hub is not included in the recall the contact will have to pay the deductible for extended warranty.
