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.

Chevy Metro 1998.car was going 50mph on expressway when brakes were applied, vehicle did not stop but hopped off the freeway to the right.

Metro

  • 103,000 miles
The contact owns a 1998 Chevrolet Metro. While driving 35 mph, the contact depressed the brake pedal and the entire passenger side of the vehicle began pulling excessively to the right. He noticed that something fractured underneath the vehicle, which he thought was one of the control arms. The vehicle was taken to a local mechanic and it was discovered that the unibody that supports the lower control arm was fractured and detached from the frame. The manufacturer was unable to assist since there were no recalls available and due to the age of the vehicle. The VIN was not accepted by the system. The current and failure mileages were less than 103,000.
