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.

Saw tv note on daimler-Chrysler recall re: Ball joints. My wife has a similar issue with a GM F-150 (independently verified by a mechanic as excessive wear for 20,000 miles and is already making the noise Chrysler says is a warning)--but dealer says it's within specs, and GM says it won't go against dealer. New husband is very worried for his wife given that ball joint is already at the stage that is quoted as "consumer would have warning because of noise"--yet no repair offered or even thought needing further review.
