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.

Thumping noise coming from front end at low speeds. Sounds like front suspension is falling apart.

While driving on the interstate we noticed a noise coming from the left front tire area. Whenever we stopped, I looked at the tire and noticed a large bubble on the sidewall of the tire. We purchased another tire and drove the car to a repair shop where we had the tire with the sidewall bubble removed and the new tire installed. We looked at the tire to see what had caused the bubble and noticed that there was a large square tire patch installed on the inside of the tire near the sidewall. This vehicle was purchased as a new vehicle and had Michelin tires on it. This was a professional patch on this tire that had to have been done at the tire manufacturer or at wayne assembly plt. Where the vehicle was built. This is not a dealer or home repair. I am disappointed to learn that a tire like this could be installed on a new vehicle. This could have caused a blow out and serious injury to someone.
