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.

1. travel down dirt roads over a period of six months. 2. tail pipe fell off (on this model 4X4 off road package the tail pipe isn't welded to the muffler) total vehicle failure of all electronic components as the wiring harness melts due to exhaust being vented directly on wiring harness also melts dust cover for shock and ABS sensor to axle housing. 3. replace tail pipe, shock, ABS sensor, wiring harness and all electronic components.
