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

Galant 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


While driving 60 mph vehicle swerved to the right, and driver lost control of the vehicle. Then, driver noticed that the rear right tire and rim separated from the vehicle. This caused the vehicle to spin around. Driver had the vehicle towed home. The cause has not been determined at this time. The driver will contact the dealer in the near future.

Galant 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,911 miles
Me and my wife were driving about 45 miles an hour when the rear end of my car started sliding I try to correct the fish tale but the driver rear tire and rim folded under the car which cause the car to flip several times no airbags deployed the car was so crushed I had to dig down into the ditch to free myself from the car upon taking a closer look I realized the sway bar had pulled apart from both sides of the rear of the car also the main support of the rear suspension had broken in too therefore causing the car to flip we could have easily died in this crash and 2 year old and our 6 month old would have no parents.
