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.

The consumer stated that while she was driving the rear end of the vehicle burst into flames. There was no prior warning that something was wrong. A gentleman followed her and told her that there were flames shooting out of the back of her vehicle. The consumer indicated that the vehicle drove perfectly, with no sign of trouble. The fire dept was called and the fire was put out. The consumer was taking her husband, who is confined to a wheelchair, on an errand. She believes if it were not for the kind gentleman who helped her, that her husband could have burned to death.

I was lucky it was parked. This could be very dangerous on the freeway.ihave heard that this has happend to other people.I feel that this truck has very unsafe springs and torsion bars that could break at any time.which could cause loss of control.
