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.

I own a 1998 Sebring convertible which I have major front end problems. I was told by Firestone that it needs a new rack and pinion. I was also informed that there is a silent recall on the rack and pinion of these vehicles.

Side molding fell off on the freeway. Brakes vibrated. Dealer said it was normal wear. Rims have bent several times. Front end was very low to the ground. Engine died becuase serpentine time belt came off, causing engine to cease. Dealer tried to repair problem, but it still squealed. Dealer couldn't remedy the problem.

The front end is too close to the ground and the unit cracks every time pulled into a parking area with cement abutments. The whole front has to be replaced. Should be a separate unit! cracked two times over $2K damage.

The wheels on the front of this car bend at the rims due to their low profile and the suspension system of this automobile. This car driven for casual use only has the rims dented in several places. The dealer stated this was due to driving roads in West Virginia, and the tire was so narrow it would always bend the rim. I asked why wasn't I informed when I bought the car and he said he did not know. This could easily break the seal causing a premature blow out and a major wreck.
