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.

Vehicle looses all forward drive when drive shaft and differential spines sheer off. This has been reported on the internet by a large population of owners of this vehicle. I was traveling in heavy traffic on I-75 North at the I-75 and I-10 interchange when without any warning the shaft failed leaving me without the abiliy to do anything other than stop. I was nearly hit by a tractor trailor as I was on an up hill grade and was not able to get completely off the express way before the vehicle came to a stop. The vehicle's park selector on the shifter was inoperative and the vehicle could only be held in place using the parking brake. The dealer said this was a common problem and that a retorfit was in the works and would be available within 30 days. The dealer had to install an original part which according to him does not contain the re-engineered fix. This leaves me out $3,000 and with a part I know will fail again in the future without notice.

A couple of months ago my vehicle just stopped on bw parkway. I had been hearing a grinding noise but thought it was my tires. I went to my mechanic who told me it was the driving shaft. He replaced a part that cost me $1200 alone. Now I am experiencing that same grinding noise especially if I go over 40 miles per hour. I have a feeling that it is the same issue again which is why my frustration has led me into doing some research on possible recalls. It appears that this is a common problem with my vehicle.
