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 was driving 55 on the highway, hit a small bump. The truck started to bounce wildly. So bad in fact, the rear tires bounced off the ground and i blew out a rear shock. I still can't believe I got the truck back under control. This problem has happened probably a dozen times since (never as extreme as the first time) over the years but at least now I know how to deal with it. SLOW DOWN AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.
