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.

Took vehicle into dealership to because was vibrating while driving in December 3, 2008; The Dealership repaired right suspension and replaced tie rods. However, by February 2009 the problem is still present - I took car into dealership - no mention of this problem, but did point out I had missed a 2007 Recall, was charged for the recall; Took car back into dealership April 2009, mentioned still experiencing vibration, shaking on right side - mechanic can't find what I'm talking about, keep my car all day! I'm believe I'm getting the, May 27, 2009, received a letter from the dealership offering to buy back my vehicle because there is a sudden demand for my vehicle type. Riiiight!
