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.

When I had my car in to fix a front end problem last year I was told two of the three motor mounts need to be replaced. Now when having a tie rod replaced I am told subframe brackets are rotted and need to be replaced. A car that is five years old should not be rotting from normal driving. Engine mounts on a car should not go after four years.

Front end had a knocking sounds, brought he veh to the dealership and they told me the tie rod ends were "loose" they tightened them and then told me I needed to purchase 4 new tires, because the two front ones were ruined by the alignment being off due to the tie rod ends. This is a veh with approx 27,000 miles on it. This should be covered under warranty, has anyone else had the same problem. If the tie rod ends are coming loose after 27,000 miles what else will fall off the vehicle"?"
