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.

2001 Chevy 2500 hd trucks ( front wheel hub assemblies) loosing up under normal driving conditions. These are sealed hub units so you must purchase brand new ones at a cost of over $500-700 per unit. I have had both sides losing up on me and now the replacement is now loose again after 30,000 miles. To test this you must jack the wheel off the ground and push/pull on the wheel it will rock back and forth as if its ready to come off the wheel assembly. I was a mechanic for 9 years so im not your average driver who would not notice items such as this. I take better care than most for my trucks and see this as a major safety factor for all other Chevy trucks on the road. Note: This was an experimental hub they used for only a couple of years. Now they went back to the actual bearing nut that you can tighten if loose....seem strange huh" maybe they know something and tried to keep it under the table??"
