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.

2002 Dodge Dakota pu truck headed East on interstate highway went out of control, left the road, flipped once & landed upside down in the median. The right front tire appeared chewed up. The right rear wheel came completely off from its mounting & the hubcap was still on the rim. The wheel was placed in the back of the truck when it was towed away. The vehicle was totaled.

Vehicle's log nuts keeps coming unscrewed, which causes wheels to be loose. The dealership indicated that it was caused by the rims and they replaced them, but problem still exists. Ph,
