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.

After only 26K miles had a clunking noise in the front end and especially when making a hard turning motion. Evidently this was a common problem because the Chevy dealer knew exactly what the problem was. The description on the repair indicates end-lube I-shaftand they used a gn lube kit fp#26098419. After only 19 months and 8K miles later it's doing the exact same thing.
