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 car was perfectly fine when purchasing it one month before for 7,000$. All of a sudden a severe, embarrassing noise started coming from the front end. Multiple mechanics could not identify the cause of the noise. It took two months before the entire front end was replaced spending thousands on parts. The culprits were ball joints causing the noise, along with struts, strut mounts, tie-rod ends, inner tie-rods.
