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.

Could have been killed. Driving at 60 mph when steering wheel started shimmying. Pulled off highway, parked and checked wheels. No movement. Got back in car and started a u-turn and front right wheel fell off. Damaged fender and trim, but no damage to axle or brakes. Had it towed and $160.00 later, new lugs. All 5 lugs had snapped. Thank god I got off of highway first. Mechanic said that lug nuts probably were not torqued properly.
