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.

The right front passenger's side tie rod end completely separated while driving about 10 mph. This happened without any prior warning or problems. This was the first incident. There was a loss of steering. The consumer was able to avoid a crash due to the low speed. The consumer took the vehicle to an independent service repair shop who offered no explanation as to why this could have occurred. The service dealer noted there was some play within the ball joints. The consumer called the dealer who said this was normal. The tie rod end was replaced with no further problems.
