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.

: the contact stated while driving 65 mph on normal road conditions a staggering motion was observed in the rear axle. On another day during rain, the vehicle hydroplaned. It was taken to the dealership who determined the vehicle was out of alignment however after alignment procedure was performed the problem persisted. Upon further inspection, a problem was discovered in the rear axle torsion bar, which was corrected installing a wedge. After the vehicle was taken to a tire dealer for new tires and alignment, it became out of alignment again. The dealership determined the alignment performed at the tire dealer was done incorrectly and they performed another alignment.
