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.

: the contact stated a squeeking sound was heard coming from the front right wheel. The contact treated the wheel with wd-40 and the sound went away. Also, while driving 10 mph in a parking lot, the right front wheel fell off. The vehicle was towed to a service dealer, who determined that the upper and lower ball joints had failed and were replaced as well as steering gear. The manufacturer was not alerted.
