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.

I was driving down the road going 35 miles an hour and noticed a loud grinding noise then my ABS light came on. My steering was much less responsive. I hit a bump in the road and my truck ran into a fence. I had to change the wheel bearings to correct the problem.

Vehicle shakes violently enough to jar your internal equipment even if you go over the smallest bump or expansion joint in the road. Returned to dealer 5 times for same complaint dealer said there is no fix. Even though we informed him that truck was uncontrollable on wet pavement and made you motion sick. Dealers service manager was convinced to ride in the truck and stated " this ride is unacceptable".
