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.

Wheel bearing went out on my way to work this morning. I assume it is the wheel bearing with my limited knowledge of cars. I was going up a steep road when it went out. It made an awful noise like metal breaking up and would not continue up the hill. This is where I become uncertain that it is just the wheel bearing. I tried to shift into reverse and it felt as if it would not shift without difficulty. At this point I shifted the rig into neutral and rolled it backwards down the hill. Not safe but thankfully I work at 430 am and there was not any traffic. I have been looking for a wheel bearing replacement as my son says he can fix it. I am confused as to whether or not I need wheel bearing AND the hub assembly or just the wheel bearing. What a nightmare… I suppose things could be worse… and from reading about similar experiences, it could have been a lot worse. I can’t imagine if I had been on the highway or had my children been in the car with me at a busier time of day.
