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 stated while driving 35 mph on a city street, there was a clunking noise coming from the front followed by the vehicle pulling to the right side. The contact managed to pull the vehicle to the side of the street without incident. Upon initial inspection, the right front tire was lying underneath the vehicle. After being towed to the dealer, it was determined the steering knuckle fractured into, and caused the right front tire to roll underneath the vehicle while attached to the remaining half of the steering knuckle. The manufacturer was alerted.
