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 lug nuts on my vehicle seem to somehow loosen themselves. The front driver tire will make noise then I look at the nuts to find that they are loose. Then when I grab the tire iron to tighten them, they either a) came loose again later, or B) the nut completely comes off...with part of the part the nut goes on still inside. I mean the entire part breaks and can't be fixed without replacing the entire axle. As of right now there are only 3 of the 5 nuts holding the tire on and the others broke.
