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.

At the first oil change in my new 2006 GMC Sierra, I found pieces of metal (assembly from the engine) attached to the magnetic drain bolt. Such is usually symptomatic of a defective bearing or something. No problem as of yet with the vehicle, but registering this observation. For record purposes. The attendant at the place where I got the oil changed said my vehicle was the fourth one he's observed with the same kind of metal pieces.

: the contact stated before pulling a newly purchased vehicle off the dealer's lot, a vibration was noticed. The dealer was made aware of the observation and they stated that the vibration was coming from the tire due to sitting for a long period of time in the lot. The vehicle has consistently vibrated on normal road conditions traveling at speeds of 65 mph. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer for further inspection. The dealer determined that the vibrations were coming from the frame of the vehicle.
