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.

While driving the vehicle on the freeway if I would let off the gas it would almost come to a complete stop, something just didnt feel right. I decided to exit the freeway, and not more than a few seconds after there was a loud boobing noise and alot of smoke, I immeditley pulled to the right and the vehicle came to a jolting stop. At first I was unsure of what it was until I saw all the oil. I looked under my vehicle, and the drive line that was conected to the rear end was completely detached and laying on the ground. The tow truck driver said the rear end seemed to be locked. And that it was confirmed when he was unloading it from the tow truck the tires wouldn't turn. This was not something that should just come apart on a vehicle. It didn't have normal wear and tear. This has to be some sort of factory defect.
