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.

  • 15,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Dodge Nitro. While driving at various speeds, a loud whining sound was present near the front end of the vehicle. The front end became extremely unstable and difficult to control. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who replaced the front wheel bearings. The contact indicated that the failure recurred approximately three years later. In addition, while driving various speeds, the vehicle suddenly stopped accelerating when the accelerator pedal was depressed and then suddenly accelerated at an extremely high rate of speed. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but the cause of the failure could not be diagnosed. No further information was available. The manufacturer was notified of the failures. The failure mileage was 15,000.
