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.

When driving at highway speeds and road is just a bit uneven, vehicle bounces all over road. Hard to control, this does not happen when towing trailer. Consumer states that the front bottoms out and causes the front end to rise suddenly, consumer feels the problem is with the rubber stoppers that are bolted to the frame that keep the spring from hitting the frame, the ones on this vehicle are only 3/4 inch clearanced from the top of the spring to the stopper, consumer states most vehicles have 4 inches.
