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.

Suspension problems on my Lexus IS300. The front upper and lower ball joints keep going out. Tie rod ends. Front control arm. Alignment is always off. The car drives with vibrations and shimmy from left to right. Loud creeking noises. Squeak!

The front tires are wearing out faster on the inside (camber) than the rest of the tire. The dealer Lexus (IS300) said that's the way the manufacturer made it.I was never told this would happen when I bought the vehicle.
