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.

I bought this car used from car mart less than a year ago.first my steering was very shaky. It got rapidly worse. I went through 3 sets of new tires in one year plus 2 alignments. I recently had trouble again and my car is in the Hyundai dealership in fayetteville. First the bearings were rusted in. Both ball joints were nearly out. The control arm is going out. The steering linkage and the cradle above the driveline is rusted and falling apart literally. The exhaust system the Cadillac converter is rusted apart for the third time. The spare tire holder was rusted closed and had to be broke off to get my spare out. Also the rear seat belt just stopped working. Talk about a bad day.
