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.

Repeated failure of left rear wheel bearing and left differential seal. Dealership has replaced wheel bearing and seal 2X, second time replaced left axle shaft also. First indication of problem is odor of gear oil leaking from differential, particularly after highway driving. Noticed it again today, (3/15/08) will be returning to dealer asap.
