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.

While backing out of the driveway, the front driver side coil spring broke. As a result, the tire was punctured, almost tipping the vehicle over. When it was discovered that the left front coil had broken, it sliced the tire across the top and caused the link on the sway bar to break.

Thank you Mrs. C.vreeland.
