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.

problem #2

  • 90,000 miles


At about 95000 miles I noticed the vehicle becoming very hard to drive whenever there was slight moisture or snow on the roads. After inspecting I noticed both rear wheels tipped in at the top substantially. The left rear wheel was also towed out at the front and both rear tires were almost completely worn even though I had just replaced them about 25000 mile prior. I took it to a local shop who informed me that there was a technical service bulletin out for bushings that press into the rear knuckles wearing prematurely. I have since moved the front tires to the rear and those have completely worn out. I understand I will need to have these bushings replaced and have the suspension aligned to fix the problem. This is a huge expense and without knowing what to look for the vehicle goes from a nice ride to almost impossible to drive in a very short time. I believe this is a huge safety concern and alot of people will be unaware of the problem or continue to drive the vehicle this way because it is very expensive to fix.

Diamante 6-cyl

Noticed recently purchased rear tires were balding on inside camber and a noise was detected when rounding corners. Went to replace tires and the mechanic "could not align the car within mfgr specs". brought to the dealer service department and was advised the rear bushings needed to be replaced. Seems like and unusual repair for a car of its age and mileage. The repair is scheduled to be completed this week.
