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.

Vehicle shook uncontrollably while making a right turn. Driver applied the brakes and the pedal went to the floor. Driver was able to maintain control of the vehicle. The left front wheel sheared off, and the lugs: Nuts were still attached to the wheel. Vehicle was towed to the dealer, and mechanic determined that the wheel, lugs: Nuts, and other parts needed to be replaced.
