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.

Dear NHTSA I don't know how to approach you with this because I have never done anything like this before. I am leasing a 2002 CRV Honda and have been very happy with it until today. While I was coming through my apartment complex a loud crack came from under the vehicle on the passenger side. The vehicle jolted to a stop and I got out of the car to look around the area of where the noise came from. The passenger side wheel appeared to look like it had separated from the axel or something. Then I looked further under the vehicle and saw that and arm or rod to the wheel had broke in half. There was an additional piece that broke as well that appears to take part in the securing of the arm or rod. I am reporting this because I fee there is a huge safety hazard regarding lives who presently own vehicle to as well as myself I am fortunate that I was only going between ten to fifteen miles per hour and was not on the freeway at a faster speed which would have resulted in a fatality or even more fatalities depending on the traffic at the time.
