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. Notes: The 2002 has the well-known and documented problem with their dashboards falling to pieces, but it also has engine failure from oil sludge. That's a doube shot of awful in your morning coffee.

A month after purchasing the vehicle was having ongoing problem with the left front end pulling to the left while driving. Dealership has serviced the vehicle several times over the years to no avail. Currently, the problem became worse. Dealership indicated that the vehicle was unsafe to drive because the left front bearing was bad, which will result in the tire and rim separating and falling off while driving.
