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 the wheel sensors stopped working, causing ABS failure. When applying the brakes there was a grinding noise and the brakes would not stop the vehicle. The dealer replaced the wheel sensors, reset the codes, replaced the right and left rear wheel bearing assembly, and resurfaced all four rotors on the vehicle. The repair seemed to have corrected the problem. In addition, while turning the steering wheel there is a clanking noise. Technical service bulletin 04-02-35-0048 dealt with the steering problem. However, this problem has not been corrected.
