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.

Consumer was driving on the free way and when exiting heard a grinding sound. When consumer looked at vehicle he noticed the entire front suspension dropped down. This happened due to the rim of the wheel breaking into pieces. This was a standard rim from the manufacturer. Brake caliper behind the rim was damaged. Consumer had the vehicle towed to his home because the vehicle's warranty expired.
