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 states when having the tires aligned the certified dealership discovered both front lower ball joints/the front passenger tie rod, and idle arm were extremely worn out and had needed to be replaced. All parts have been replaced by the dealership at the contact's expense. The work was done at C&H repairs at louisville, ky. There were other vehicles at dealership with similar problems.

While performing an oil change consumer noticed that the steering arm adjusting sleeve for the tie rod had 100% surface rust. This could rust through, and result in steering loss. The adjusting sleeve was only 1/8 of an inch thick. Dealership and the manufacturer indicated that this was okay, but would not supply documentation to support the assertion.. this was a common problem with these model vehicles.
