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.

Sierra 1500

My son was driving his 2006 GMC Sierra pickup, when the ABS warning light illuminated, followed by the truck wanting to steer to the right. He investigated and found that the right front wheel was tilted inboard and decided to have the truck towed home. Today we removed the wheel, and found a total failure of the wheel hub assembly. This is a sealed unit that contains the wheel bearings, and has the wheel studs mounted to it also. Apparently this is not an item that can be serviced in the field, such as repacking of the bearings. Both wheel bearings were completely destroyed, and the only thing holding the wheel on was the brake caliper. We installed a new hub assembly and brake disc to correct the problem. Old parts are available.
