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 car had a noise in the rear sounded like a lose pipe was waiting to have the car look at. Some days later all of a sudden one day the spring must have moved and flattened the tire. Installed the spare tire and drove to the dealer turns out that both rear coil springs were broken.
