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.

2005 PT CRUISER (turbo) was taken to dealership for annual inspection and oil change. Inspection was not granted. Vehicle was pronounced "unsafe to drive" as the bearings on the spindle (on axle) were destroyed and both front wheels were wobbling. Mechanic said one or both wheels could come off. In the next bay was another PT CRUISER (turbo) with the identical problem. The mechanics discussed whether the design was sufficient to support the power of the turbo. Until the parts arrive (we have to pay the $600+ for them) we have a rental at the dealers suggestion and our cost.
