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.

Safety recall F23 - lower ball joints on my 2002 model year Jeep Liberty. I contacted the dealership in alexandria to perform this recall and was informed it will take 6 weeks to get the replacement parts. I believe this is not a reasonable time for me to use my vehicle when there may be a chance of an accident due to bad ball joints.
