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.

Still have not determine source of problem - taken into several service centers for analysis. Problem only occurs when driving with one or more passengers. The true symptoms are that the right front wheel feels like it is dragging due to being loose and wobbling or the bearing grabbing. Problem is - this does not happen when driving solo (which is one of the service center diagnosis problems as I did not notice that originally) and it also disappears once you get to a constant speed. I have check lug nuts and surface of tire for signs of tread separation and have not found any signs of problems. Any suggestions would be appreciated - I wondering what to do next except run til final failure.
