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.

Passenger side lower front ball joint, (front was shaking while driving and had to be replaced) driver side front outer tie rod, (steering wheel was shaking while driving) both rear upper control arms. ( was not diagnosed until I was having wheel alignment done.) but rear tires were damaged from these parts being worn.. had to replace all these parts. Only have rear upper control arms and tie rod. Owners opinion is that factory wheels are to big for this vehicle and causing to much pressure on these parts.
