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.

Wheel bearings/hub had to be replaced after nearly complete failure (complete failure would have been the tire locking into place). It started with a grinding sound coming from a wheel - best heard at low speeds and while turning.

This was the first time the hub assembly was put on the driver and passenger side. Just a few months later, we had to replace both sides again!

I heard a grinding/rumble noise when going through a parking garage. Took it in and I needed new brakes not a suprise, but the right front wheel bearing was also bad.
