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.

Front wheels developed grining noise. Dealer says its worn out hubs and bearing on both sides and claims its from potholes. I don't hit many potholes. I make a conscience effort to avoid potholes. Repair is costing me $1000. I think I'm being taken.

Two front wheel hubs melted off wheel, causing the hubs to fly away which may cause injuries. But bolts are still on the wheel.
