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.

Over the last two years I've had the front end thoroughly examined at several different garages specializing in tires, suspension, etc. They've not been able to find anything. Again, it generally only happens in very warm weather and after I've been on the road for at least 30 minutes-- a soft clunking noise when I brake or accelerate; at times I sense I can feel it in the pedals. Very noticeable in stop and go traffic.
