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.

When ever i stop at a red light the truck starts to vibrate really bad. it started with just the steering wheel, and now im at 90,024miles and the whole truck shakes, the seats and everything. As soon as i let off the brake and push the gas it goes away. It only happens when im stopped.
