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 stated while traveling at 70 mph the wheel bearing went out. The tires locked, causing the vehicle to skid. The electrical harness broke and wrapped around the wheel, causing the tire to skid on the road. Also, the vehicle had no power steering or ABS. The vehicle was maneuvered off the road so the traffic could get by. The vehicle was towed to a dealership, and was unable to determine what happened to the vehicle. Updated 02/09/06.

The wheels are premium alumium that are chrome plate. Put new tires on it because one kept going soft. Then two of the tires did that again. Took them off, and there was nothing wrong with them. He said the chrome was bulbing up under the tire and letting the air out.. noticed this about 5 months. This happens about once a week. Contacted GM they just say vehicle is out of warranty.
