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 owns a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo. The contact stated that there was a noise coming from the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to a repair shop, where they stated that the front and rear tie rods and wheel bearings were defective. The mechanic also discovered that the underbody of the frame was corroded, especially on the driver's side. The mechanic refused to make any repairs. The failure was related to the recall associated with NHTSA campaign id number: 10V436000 (suspension: Rear); however the manufacturer stated that the VIN was not included. The approximate failure and current mileages were 117,000. Updated 8/23/12 the consumer stated there was a slow leak on the front passenger side tire.
