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.

This is unheard in most makes of cars wheel bearings shouldn't go out till after 100,000 miles, and of course this happened right after the so called 70,000 mile warranty ran out which i have had problems before with Chrysler on getting things fixed. I could understand the wheel bearings going out earlier if i drove on bad roads. I guess i am lucky though at least i didn't have to replace the hubs ive seen video online were a mechanic could actually wiggle the hub a good 4 inches back and forth.....what junk. The price i put on the repair was me doing the work and that doesn't add in the miss work i lost to fix it and thats only wheel. Now i wouldn't say it was to tough to replace it you only have to remove the brakes, caliper, front sway bar, lower control arm, loosen upper control arm, and remove the steering knuckle. Then borrow another car to run down to a machine shop to remove the old bearing and press the new one in for about 40 bucks. FUN......................
