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.

The tires on my Intrepid wore badly on the inside, so I took it in for an alignment. They couldn't get the front wheels aligned because the standard tie rod ends needed a special tool, which was nearly impossible to turn since the ends are above the axle and extremely difficult to get to with the wheels on (taking them off wouldn't be very practical while doing an alignment, now, would it?) I payed half of the alignment cost (-$30) and replaced the tie rod end and sleeve on the side that gave them the most trouble (-$20). I took it back in so they could finish the alignment job (-$30), but now they couldn't get the other side to move. Replaced the other side (-$20) and went back a third time for them to finish the job (-$25, for an extra half hour of labor). There's a total of $40 in parts, and $85 in labor for an alignment job that should have been no more than $60. And the real solution? Buy an after-market tie rod end with a six-point head to replace the 'special' slotted end that comes standard on the car.
