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.

Tie-Rod broke turning into a 7-11 parking lot. Second broken rod in past year. Both broke after turning into parking lots. Previous time, force of rod snapping drove the rod thru the wheel, piercing it and puncturing the tire. Had to replace ball-joint, tie-rod, wheel & tire. It appears to be an obvious engineering defect putting too much pressure on the wheel. The camber of the tire on turns increases the stress on the metal. Should have designed a larger turning radius to avoid the issue. I can't believe that the number of problems w/ suspension haven't generated a recall.
