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.

I was driving my van with my pregnant cousin on board when we heard a loud noise. The steering no longer controlled the rear end of the car, and the rear began to sway from side to side. I slowed to about 3 miles per hour and got the car off the road. I was about to go up awinding mountain road. I took pictures of the damage, the trailing arm completely snapped in half.
