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 purchased a 2001 dodge caravan on November 14th 2005, about a week after i purchased it i was hearing a clunking sound in the front end like the entire vehicle was going to fall apart, so i had it looked at and got it replaced by laser lube. As far as i know nothing major could have happened but just by having an annoying noise and it feeling like there is something lose under the front end.. but anyway i had to get them replaced on January 17th 2006.
