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.

NHTSA recall campaign number: 97V140000. Component: Suspension:front:springs:coil springs. Details: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles. Road grit and gravel associated with winter road conditions can penetrate the rubber of the lower front spring mounts and accumulate in the mounts causing notches or pits to develop. These notches can develop cracks resulting in breakage of a bottom coil of the spring. Consequence: The vehicles ride height could be affected causing noise while the vehicle is driven. The vehicles dynamic stability can be affected reducing the drivers ability to maintain control of the vehicle. Corrective action: Dealers will replace both front springs and lower spring mounts.
