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.

1998 Dodge Ram tire fell off while driving. Consumer states that the tire fell off while driving on the highway. This caused the vehicle to stop in the center lane of the highway. The lug nuts were missing. The vehicle was also struck my another vehicle. (Ohio traffic crash report # 10-0246-90)

Studs keep breaking on the front wheels. In November 2002 right front studs "fell off" as a mechanic was taking the tires off as part a maintenance inspection. Items replaced. In March 2002, I was replacing the calipers and as I placed the lug wrench "manual type" on the lug nuts two fell off from the front right and one from the front left. I am not sure if the two front right were the same ones that were replaced in Nov 2002. I am currently working with a dealership to have the broken studs replaced. Would like further information if available as it concerns me that they may pop while driving and I may loose a tire. Thank you for your time.
