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.

When I was leaving work for the day, car started to make a horrible growling sound. I thought I might have had ice stuck between the tire and wheel-well, but, after driving for about a mile and a half, I started to smell burning rubber. I stopped the car, and searched for ice in all four tires. I never found ice, but, I did find a big spring rubbing on my front passenger side tire.

All things considered, it wasn't the worst disaster, but, I felt like it was an unusual failure. I have had the car 10 years, so, I guess it is entitled to break, but I was expecting something less fundamental to the structure of the vehicle to go.
