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.

- while driving on the highway at 65 mph the right rear axle on the 2004 Ford F-150 cracked. There was no indication, any type of vibration, or warning before the incident. The hub stayed attached to the wheel at the time of the incident. The right rear axle cracked which caused the vehicle to have no steering. The driver lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a median. The contact had the vehicle serviced every 3,000 miles, as well as recently getting 4 new tires. The contact could provide any invoice and and an accident report.
