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.

problem #2

Jan 022011

PT Cruiser

  • 35,508 miles


Front wheel bearings worn, extremely clearance(wheel moves approximately 1 inch top to bottom when shaking it). Will replace bearings soon. Noticed while replacing front brakes at 35,508 miles. A sealed wheel bearing should not wear out at this low mileage unless defect in bearing or manufactures design.
