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 front sub-frame has completely rusted out. We live in a salt zone (Michigan). There is also visible corrosion throughout the exterior. We were driving and the front passenger wheel started bowing out and we started vibrating. We got to safety before anything happened.

Brought the car in to correct a bent strut, put it on the lift and pronounced it undriveable! the whole back frame had rusted out. They pulled the inspection sticker. How can this be?

: the contact stated while driving 25 mph the steering pulled hard to the left and got worse at higher speeds. The vehicle was taken to the dealership for inspection. They aligned the front wheels and elongated the bottom bolt of the strut to the knuckle, however the problem still exists. The manufacturer was alerted. After four attempts to correct the problem, the dealer finally stated that was the way the vehicle was designed. Updated 03/20/06.
