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.

My personal vehicle is a 2008 Ford Explorer that has been diagnosed with multiple wheel bearing failure.I work for a Ford dealership and we have had multiple model wheel bearing failure...mostly on SUV I.e. Explorer, edge, Mountaineer, mkx...have worked here for 20 years and have never seen this amount of wheel bearing failure, most of these failures are on vehicle that are less then five years old and not high mileage...when left go and not repaired, these wheel bearings which start out as being noisey, can quickly lead to failure which could result in wheel seperation from axle......I feel this should be investigated before any fatalities are involved....
