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 had to prematurely replace the right upper ball joint and control arm on my 2001 Dodge Durango. The vehicle only had 42,000 miles on it when they were replaced. Sounds like it was a good idea that I listened to the rattle and had it fixed before something tragic happened.
