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.

Had front tires replaced and truck immediately devloped a very hard shimmy. Took it back to tire shop and had all wheels and tires re-balanced. Shop couldn't see any reason for the shimmy, other than i would need new ball joints in the near future. So replaced the ball joints. Shimmy is not as wild as before, but still very noticeable at 45mph. Really don't dare to drive it anymore and its our only vehicle and we live in a rural area. Can't keep dropping $$$$ into it, one piece at a time, and slowly rebuild it. Gotta use it to go to work somtime.
