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.

The contact owns a 2004 Chrysler PT CRUISER. The contact stated that the lower control arm bushings and front suspension make noise while driving various speeds. It feels as if he is driving over bumps and a stone pavement. The dealer stated that he must pay for the repair so the contact took it to a mechanic shop for repair. The failure mileage was 27,998.
