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.

1998 Honda Passport broke right lower control arm. Consumer states that the right control arm mount had detached because the frame had rusted in that area. The left mount was still attached, but had a large hole in it. The spring mounts also had large amounts of rust.

The contact owns a 1998 Honda Passport. While pulling into the service garage at an unknown speed, the mechanic noticed that the front frame of the vehicle was severely eroded, which resulted in cracking and breaking. The dealer and manufacturer have not yet determined the cause of the failure. They stated that they will not perform a diagnostic to determine if they are at fault. The failure and current mileages were 120,000. Updated 03/13/08.
