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.

2011 Chevrolet Volt Owner Comments

This problem appears to be a safety issue that I'm concerned may impact other Volts. Here's the background. On Sunday afternoon, I was pulling into my garage at a very slow rate and got halfway through when I heard a loud 'crunching' sound. I got out wondering what the the noise was and saw that the front driver's side of the car down and directly sitting on the tire. The control arm or strut or whatever you call it had seemingly collapsed. Looking more closely, it looked like the wheel had practically come off. Grease was dripping onto the driveway from underneath. The dealer has now repaired the problem and claims it was a bad bolt, however I am not confident that such a major manufacturing flaw can be so easily dismissed.
