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.

On 6/22, the right wheel bearing assembly failed while traveling ~20 mph. As a result, a fire occurred. I put the fire out in our driveway at home with a water hose. Significant damage occurred to the right wheel assembly, bearing housing, 1/E axle, rotor, caliper, brake pads, emergency brake, etc...luckily, were close to home and were not traveling 70 mph. No other vehicles were involved and there were no injuries as my wife and I were able to get all of our children out of the Expedition safely. Our Expedition is a 2004.
