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.

Was driving car and heard loud noise got out and saw front right side was sitting lower on one side. Car pulls hard to the right. Had my mechanic inspect. Concluded that the cup holder that holds the vehicles springs was rusted out. I have researched this issue and seems to be a common problem and or design flaw. Thankfully did not happen at higher speeds in dangerous conditions.
