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.

My car was making a clicking sound and I could fell it in the steering wheel when I was turning. I took it to a mechanic thinking it was a ball joint. He said I needed to replace the control arm it was rusted and ready to fall apart. So I did and it was expensive. The other side wasn't in bad shape at that time but was starting to deteriorate. Well now that one side is stronger than the other it has deteriorated fast and also needs to be replaced asap. I just wanted to complain because I saw the recall for the tribute and I seem to have the same problem as well.
