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 contact stated the rear window leaked when it rained causing the rear seat to become wet. The interior lights and the brake lights failed to turn off when the ignition was turned off. Also, there was a humming noise coming from the rear end as the vehicle traveled 10 mph. The rear end was replaced 1 years ago including the suspension, rear axle, chassis, rings, pins and rear differential. The service dealer and manufacturer were notified.

The bar failed within two days of each other-we had the front right fixed then later that day after getting the right fixed. The left side went out. It went out with no warning and we discovered ice in the bar. If we were driving faster I would of lost control of the vehicle. Especially in the climate that we live in-snow, ice are apart of our day. We have read this is a problem happening to most trucks. We would love to see a recall so no one gets hurt or is inconvience like we were-total days without truck 5.
